Hi,
Thanks for query,
It is very likely that schizoaffective sympyoms can be misdiagnosed if you have adult ADD.
Even if you have ADD in the child hood it is remains undiagnosed.
This is latest research so it can be taken as psychotic symptoms and going treatment.
Now nothing to worry,treatment is possible and consult psychiatrist and go for the treatment.
Ok and bye.
