Re: Only hyperactive/impulsive symptoms?

The vast majority of people -- especially adults -- diagnosed with ADHD have at least some "inattentive" symptoms.

By definition, any adult diagnosed with ADHD that presents as predominantly inattentive or combined must have at least 5 inattentive symptoms (and in kids, at least 6 inattentive symptoms).

It is uncommon (though not impossible) for an adult to be diagnosed with ADHD that presents as predominantly hyperactive-impulsive, and rarer still for such a person to lack inattentive symptoms entirely.
