Overview-

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a mental health condition affecting both children and adults. It is the most commonly diagnosed mental disorder in children. While adults may have it as well, it often goes undiagnosed. Similar to what the name suggests, ADHD causes symptoms of inattention (inability to focus), hyperactivity (excessive movement or inability to sit still), and impulsivity (actions that occur without thought).

Symptoms- 

Symptoms of ADHD may present themselves differently in children and adults. Adults may have subconsciously found ways to deal with or hide their disorder to fit into social and professional settings, while children do not yet possess those skills. While most school-aged children have high activity levels and difficulty sitting still for prolonged periods, children with ADHD will have symptoms that are noticeably greater than their peers. Symptoms of ADHD may be broken into two categories: Inattentive type, Hyperactive/Impulsive type.

Inattentive type symptoms-

  • Doesn’t pay close attention to details
  • Makes careless mistakes in schoolwork or professional tasks
  • Has difficulty staying focused during lectures, conversations or reading
  • Does not seem to listen during conversation
  • Does not follow instructions
  • Difficulty organizing tasks or spaces
  • Frequently losing items such as schoolwork, books, keys, wallet, phone, etc
  • Forgets simple tasks, such as chores, returning phone calls, keeping appointments

Hyperactive/Impulsive type symptoms-

  • Frequently fidgets
  • Consistently taps hands or feet
  • Unable to stay seated at work or school
  • Unable to play or do leisure activities quietly
  • Talks too much
  • Finishing people’s sentences
  • Blurts out answers before questions have been completely asked
  • Difficulty waiting their turn
  • Interrupts others

Causes-

Scientists have not been able to identify an exact cause of ADHD at this time. However, some suggest that genetics may contribute to ADHD. Three out of four children diagnosed with ADHD have a relative with the symptom as well, making genetics a probable link.

Treatment-

At Morgan Virtual Psychiatry, we find a combination of behavioral therapy and medication to be a suitable treatment for ADHD in children and adults. Behavioral therapy can help teach patients how to control their actions while providing strategies to improve structure and organization. Medication needs will vary from patient to patient, depending on the severity of their disorder.

"Billy is awesome she listens well and has never gotten overwhelmed with me and everyone usually gets overwhelmed with me at some point. Super knowledgeable. She has me on a medication that has me better. Is very knowledgeable and cautious about other medications and health conditions which is a problem when seeing other Dr's . I am a person not another patient or mental person as one can be treated other places so I am more relaxed when sharing and speaking with Billie. I am totally relaxed , I totally respect and hold nothing from her the more information I feel i can provide the better she can help me understand. Thank you Billie you are helping me one day at a time."

"Having a background in psychology makes it difficult for me to find a suitable provider because my expectations are quite high. However, Billie was phenomenal from the start! She is no nonsense and very accurate. She is not a doctor that tells you what you want to hear, she tells you what you need to hear."

"Incredible psychiatrist. Most definitely saved my life. After two other psychiatrists who made me far worse health wise, i decided to give it a shot with MVP. Incredibly knowledgable, and caring. No dr ego, she listens, she cares, and she is trustworthy. Gabby is great with responding and helping set up appts and ordering meds. Amazing"

"I’ve been with Billie for medical management and a good ol’ psychiatric gab session since 2020. She has amazing bedside manner and really listens to you, especially if you’re dealing with chronic pain and depression. I would highly recommend seeing Billie at her new tele-health practice."
