Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, or ADHD, is a common condition found in both children and adults. Its symptoms include difficulty paying attention or concentrating, hyperactivity, and a tendency to be impulsive. ADHD was once believed to be only a problem for children and young adults, but we now know that adults may also struggle with ADHD – an issue that is often under-diagnosed.

How We Treat ADHD

Dr. Sehdev first begins the ADHD treatment with a thorough diagnosis. ADHD can be misdiagnosed, especially in adults, and so a careful review of the challenges, behaviors, symptoms, and more will help ensure not only that ADHD is the correct diagnosis, but what treatment approach will work best.

As an experienced Dallas psychiatrist for ADHD and ADD, Dr. Sehdev will compose a strategy that will help you manage the condition in both the short and long term. These may include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) – Therapy is an effective way to treat not only ADHD, but also many of the other associated psychological and emotional challenges associated with ADHD. CBT, and other therapeutic approaches, can help build self-esteem, manage stress, and teach patients ongoing skills to improve their quality of life.
  • Medications – We integrate medications only when they are the best choice for the patient. However, ADHD responds very well to medication. In those with ADHD, psychiatric medications like Ritalin and Adderall are effective, safe, work instantly, and can be taken as needed.

We can also integrate other forms of counseling and support services as needed. Our goal at Aware Behavioral Health is to make the best decisions for you as a patient and ensure the best possible outcome for anyone living with ADHD.
