Initial Appointment




What Is ADHD?

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders that often persists into adulthood. It comes in the form of inattentiveness, hyperactivity, or their mix.

Common Symptoms of ADHD



These are major symptoms of ADHD. During the assessment for ADHD diagnosis, you will fill out more detailed checklists.

Since this disorder has a low chance of developing in adulthood, ADHD symptoms may often mask or co-exist with other underlying mental health conditions, such as:

Causes of Adult ADHD

The exact causes of adult ADHD are not fully understood. Research suggests that a combination of genetic, neurobiological, and environmental factors may contribute to its development.

Genetic factors

ADHD tends to run in families, indicating a strong genetic component. Studies have shown that individuals with a family history of ADHD are more likely to develop the disorder. Specific genes involved in regulating neurotransmitters and brain development have been implicated in ADHD.

Neurobiological factors

ADHD is associated with differences in brain structure and functioning. Neurotransmitters, such as dopamine and norepinephrine, which play a role in regulating attention, impulse control, and executive functions, are thought to be involved. Structural and functional differences in certain brain regions, including the prefrontal cortex and basal ganglia, have also been observed.

Environmental factors

Various environmental factors may contribute to the development of ADHD. Prenatal exposure to tobacco smoke, alcohol, or drugs, premature birth, low birth weight, and maternal stress during pregnancy have been associated with an increased risk of ADHD. Lead exposure and certain prenatal and early childhood environmental toxins may also play a role.

Brain injuries

Traumatic brain injuries and other types of brain damage may increase the risk of developing ADHD symptoms or exacerbate existing symptoms. However, ADHD is not solely caused by brain injuries, and most individuals with ADHD do not have a history of such injuries.

ADD vs. ADHD: What is the Difference?

Today, people with symptoms of ADD also receive an ADHD diagnosis.

It only means that inattentiveness is prevalent.

It is all about the history and the changes in the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders).


Included ADD (attention deficit disorder) of two types: with and without hyperactivity.

DSM-4 and beyond

ADD was changed to ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), which involves three types: predominantly inattentive, predominantly hyperactive, and combined.

As attention deficit disorder management is meant to treat particular symptoms, the difference between ADD and ADHD treatment is significant only if you have more hyperactivity signs. 

Depending on the symptoms and overall mental health history, we’ll offer a treatment plan that will work best for you.

ADHD Assessment

The most preferred option is an early diagnosis of ADHD (in childhood) because, with age, typical symptoms of ADHD become less obvious or indicate another mental condition.

The good news is that modern approaches to assessment make it possible to get an ADHD diagnosis as an adult.

Many online screening systems for ADHD in adults analyze common symptoms, so the results may only serve as a hypothesis.
A face-to-face session with a licensed therapist is a compulsory requirement to get diagnosed and receive online treatment for ADHD.

Schedule an appointment to start your virtual ADHD treatment with a licensed mental health expert.

Get ADHD Diagnosis Online

Patients can’t diagnose themselves.
Only a healthcare professional can confirm ADHD, rule out another disorder, and develop a treatment plan.
At MEDvidi, you can get diagnosed with ADHD online by our telehealth MDs and psychiatrists after a detailed assessment via telehealth services.

Step 1. Online Assessment via SmartCare Symptoms Checker

Signing up

Create an account and start the ADHD diagnosis process.

Taking the ADHD test online

Choose the “ADHD” option when starting the online screening, and answer clinically tested questions.

Initial result

Based on your answers about ADHD symptoms, the system calculates your probability of having a mild, moderate, or severe condition.

Step 2. First online consultation

Examining your mental health history starting from childhood

You’ll be asked about the symptoms you had at different stages of your life and how current symptoms impact your day-to-day activities and different areas of life.

Comparing your ADHD symptoms with DSM-5

To get diagnosed, you should have been experiencing at least five symptoms of inattentiveness or hyperactivity (mentioned in the DSM-5) in the last six months.

Ruling out other mental health conditions

If the information you provide makes the healthcare professional assume that you have another diagnosis rather than ADHD, you may be asked additional questions.

Have a session with a licensed medical professional right from home and learn how to manage your symptoms.

Clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, primary care physicians, neurologists, or family doctors can diagnose ADHD in adults. But, not all of them can prescribe stimulant medications. So, if you get diagnosed by a psychologist, you still have to see a medical doctor (in person or online) to confirm the diagnosis and get medications prescribed.

ADHD diagnosis in adults is possible. However, there is little chance that ADHD starts developing in adulthood. So, people who experience ADHD symptoms from childhood are more likely to get the diagnosis. In other cases, the signs of ADHD you notice might be related to some other conditions, which your doctor will define.

To go through the assessment and get a diagnosis, you should visit a mental health professional in a traditional clinic or online. The doctor will ask you about your symptoms and health history starting from childhood. According to the symptoms mentioned in the DSM-5 and other factors, a therapist may confirm the ADHD diagnosis or another condition causing your symptoms.

Treatment Plan

We know how to tailor standard ADHD treatment guidelines to your requirements and needs.
The most common ADHD treatment strategy consists of the following elements:

Medications management

Stimulant and non-stimulant medications are usually used as a fast-acting impulse control treatment to help eliminate symptoms quickly.


Behavioral therapy for adults is focused on long-term behavioral changes. They are expected to last even after stopping taking medicines.

Lifestyle modifications

Both medication and non-medication methods are complemented with self-help treatment tips, so the patients can cope with the symptoms themselves.

The combination of these three elements makes it more likely to achieve treatment goals for ADHD.

At MEDvidi, every client obtains a personalized and affordable ADHD treatment according to the information received during the assessment.

Prescription Management

Most patients require medical treatment for ADHD as it brings the expected results in about 70-80% of cases.

When choosing a proper medicine, doctors first decide on the stimulant or non-stimulant treatment for ADHD.

Stimulants are fast-acting. Their impact is noticed within minutes to a few hours and fades once the person stops taking them.

The most common options are:

Non-stimulants require a longer period to show their efficiency but can be used if a person experiences side effects from stimulants or has an addiction history.

The most common options are:

How Do ADHD Medications Work?

The main purpose of ADHD medication is to boost the production of dopamine and norepinephrine and balance their levels.

They help the patient reduce impulsiveness and frustration, improve the ability to focus and grow the attention span, enhance memory and information retention, and more.

Although medications themselves can’t make the person obtain new habits, they improve brain functioning and create a strong foundation for behavior modifications.

If not diagnosed or not getting ADHD treatment, adults may have difficulties in different spheres of their lives. These may be troubles in relationships, job search, handling deadlines, and communicating with colleagues and friends. There also may be a higher risk of addictions and the development of other conditions, such as depression and anxiety.

Stimulant and non-stimulant ADHD meds primarily differ in the speed of onset and offset. Other differences are related to their mechanisms of action, side effects, abuse potential, and more.

No, you cannot get ADHD medications over the counter without a prescription. ADHD medications, both stimulant and non-stimulant, are classified as prescription drugs in the United States. These medications have potentially severe side effects and require careful monitoring and dosage adjustments by a healthcare professional.

The cost of ADHD medications can vary depending on the specific medication prescribed, dosage, formulation (generic or brand name), insurance coverage, and location.

It is possible to order ADHD meds online through legitimate and regulated channels. Legitimate online pharmacies operate under strict regulations and require a valid prescription from a healthcare professional before dispensing medication.
