The patient with adult ADHD

About 4.5% of adults have attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), but most have not been properly diagnosed or treated. Few psychiatrists specialize in ADHD, which means that treatment is most often carried out in primary care. Primary care providers are uniquely positioned to help patients with ADHD because their long-term relationship with patients allows them to gauge the patient's success in major life roles that are affected by ADHD and to use pharmacotherapy and behaviour management strategies to improve outcomes.
