What is ADHD?

ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects concentration, organization, and impulsivity. It can affect nearly every aspect of your life, including academic performance, work productivity, relationships, and overall daily functioning. ADHD can lead to challenges in tasks requiring sustained attention, planning, time management, and self-regulation.

While there’s no cure for ADHD, many tools can help you cope with the symptoms. North Tex MedCare Clinic and Urgent Care offers comprehensive support and treatment options tailored to manage ADHD symptoms.

Are there different types of ADHD?

The three main types of ADHD are:


With inattentive/distractible ADHD, you may struggle to maintain focus or concentration on tasks, frequently lose or misplace items, and have difficulty following through on instructions.


If you have hyperactive/impulsive ADHD, you may experience restlessness, fidgeting, difficulty staying seated, impulsivity, difficulty waiting your turn, and a tendency to act without considering the consequences.


Combined type ADHD involves a combination of symptoms from both the inattentive/distractible and hyperactive/impulsive types. You may experience challenges with focus, impulsivity, restlessness, and executive functioning across various areas of your life, impacting your academic, occupational, and social functioning.
