D29 – 2.4 ADHD

ADHD

  • A persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity symptoms that interferes with functioning or development.
  • Several symptoms were present before the age of 12 years old.
  • Several symptoms are present in two or more settings.

This differs from Treatment Resistant Depression because in that condition inattentive and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity symptoms are not the prominent symptomatology.
