01-2 Forgetful and Disorganized? Old Age or ADHD? David W Goodman MD

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is commonly associated with children who are inattentive, distractible, impulsive, and fidgety. However, ADHD persists for many children into adulthood and older age. Unfortunately few clinicians are aware of this lifelong disorder and easily discount memory and attention decline to getting older. ADHD in older adults occurs in approximately 3% of the population.

How and when to seek medical advice is discussed. For more information please visit:
