Our expert says:
ADHD, though still controversial in some areas, is generally recognized now as a problem occurring in children. And not only was it often unrecognized in the past, but it was broadly assumed to burn itself out as the person matured. More recently the idea of some similar symptoms continuing into, perhaps first noticed in, adulthood, has been more widely considered and recognized, though maybe a bit more controversial still. And the best treatment for it is also not fully agreed. However, recognizing the nature of the problem is an essential step towards understanding it and gaining control. Don't hesitate to be rank in asking your doc more about what this means, what he thinks the outlook is, and what treatment he is recommending. I"m not sure whether the Paxil is intended for that purpose or not.
