Not all problems with attention are ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). It is important to know that stimulants should not be used if you have attention or focus problems.
These are some other issues that could cause difficulty focusing and concentration.
Too much to do
Stress and too little to do
ADHD can begin in childhood and continue through adulthood. Some people with ADHD may not have to take medication until their adult years. This person would still have problems as a child. If everything was perfect from childhood to 30, or 40, it’s likely not ADHD. However, you may have more stress in your adult life. You can force your mind to do more by taking stimulants. Burnout can look like severe anxiety and depression.
