5 reasons why ADHD may be the wrong diagnosis

5 reasons why ADHD may be the wrong diagnosis

ADHD is frequently overdiagnosed. I call it that “lazy clinician label.” Most clinicians point to ADHD when they lack the appropriate knowledge to decipher between two similar disorders, medical conditions, or a complex diagnostic history. Even for adults, ADHD has become the catch-all term for adults struggling with attention, hyperactivity, or inattentiveness. But the reality is that ADHD can often look like the following disorders:

  1. Bipolar disorder (manic symptoms)
  2. Substance abuse
  3. Withdrawal symptoms from drugs or medications
  4. Depression
  5. Anxiety
  6. Phobias
  7. Personality disorders
  8. Autism Spectrum Disorders
  9. Mental Retardation
  10. Problems of life!
