How can I get more information on ADHD?

If you think you have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), talk to your doc. Most people find medication and therapy make a world of a difference in managing their ADHD symptoms. It might seem like a pain in the you know what to go through the lengthy process of ADHD diagnosis, but it’s worth it.  After all, Kobe Bryant didn’t become a basketball star over night.  Look how much his hard work has paid off!

Your doctor may be able to prescribe you stimulant or non-stimulant medications that can help you function better at school or work and in social situations. Seeing a psychologist (remember Lorraine Bracco's character in The Sopranos? Or the sexy star of In Treatment, Gabriel Byrne) is another option. Many psychologists offer counseling or group therapy for adults with ADHD. In these sessions, you can learn how to communicate better and be more productive at work. So talk to your doc today.
