Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a childhood condition that can last into adulthood in about one-third of cases.

If you've been diagnosed with ADHD as an adult, chances are good that your doctor has prescribed a medication -- typically a stimulant -- and suggested cognitive behavioral therapy or even a life coach. She might also have suggested a good pocket planner.

Treating ADHD in adults requires a multi-pronged approach. Symptoms are generally treated with medicine.

But it's not just a matter of taking a pill. There is work to be done on practical stuff, such as getting organized, and on other emotional issues that often come with the territory.

Medications are certainly your first line of defense against ADHD. What medication you should take, well that depends and varies with each individual and it is always the best option to consult the doctor for getting the best advice on what medication will best suit you and also the dosage.

Stimulants are considered the first-line choice for treatment. They help adjust the levels of two chemical messengers in your brain called norepinephrine and dopamine.
