hello,
Welcome To Health Care Magic.
ADD OR Attention Deficit Disorder is mainly charecterised by inattention, easy distractibility, disorganization,forgetfullness,lethargy-fatigue,sluggishness,drowsiness and day dreaming.
First of all i would like to ask you is this the case with you?Are you making careless mistakes,have difficulty in concentrating,find organizing your work difficult.Than its better to go to a neurologist than relying on your friends words and coming to any conclusions.
Some medications along with behavioural theraphy will prove helpful.but a doctor first.
Take care.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
If you feel that you have ADHD it is best you consult a Psychiatrist as you first need to be diagnosed with ADHD before any treatment or intervention can be given. If you are diagnosd of having it, you may require certain medication to keep you alert. There are many other approaches in treatment as well which you should best discuss with your Psychiatrist.

welcome to hcm,
IT is better to advice you to get all your pathological test under the advice of medical man.and use medication under his/her advice.it does seem to give advice remotely without medical investigation

Hello, welcome to HCM. The characteristic features of ADD/ADHD are inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity are the key behaviors of ADHD. You must not get concerned by saying of your friend. You must visit a psychiatrist to get yourself evaluated and only after that you should think anything about it further. Wish you good health.
