The most common symptoms of ADHD are:

1. Impulsiveness: acting before thinking of consequences, jumping from one activity to another, disorganization, tendency to interrupt other peoples' conversations.

2. Hyperactivity: restlessness, often characterized by an inability to sit still, fidgeting, squirminess, climbing on things, restless sleep.

3. Inattention: easily distracted, day-dreaming, not finishing work, difficulty listening.

The DSM-IV categorizes the symptoms of ADHD into three clusters, referred to as subtypes: (1) Inattentive; (2) hyperactive/impulsive; and (3) combined. Most people exhibit some of these behaviors but not to the point where they significantly interfere with a person's work, relationships, or studies. ADHD may accompany other disorders such as anxiety or depression.Health Question & Answer
