ADHD and Substance abuse disorders

 ADHD1

ADHD is a disorder commonly seen in clinical practice. Myth and controversy surrounds the disorder, posing challenges to the treating healthcare professional.

ADHD is essentially a disorder of inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. According to the DSM-5, symptoms must have been present prior to the age of 12 years of age, must be present in 2 or more settings, and must cause social, academic or occupational dysfunction for the diagnosis to be made.

Thus, a comprehensive history is essential in all patients. In the case of children, a collateral history from parents and/or teachers is also necessary to make an accurate diagnosis
