The Symptoms Must Not Be Better Accounted For By Another Mental Disorder. The Specific Etiology Of Adhd Is Unknown, And There Is No Single Diagnostic Test. Adequate Diagnosis Requires The Use Not Only Of Medical But Also Of Special Psychological, Educational, And Social Resources. Learning May Or May Not Be Impaired. The Diagnosis Must Be Based Upon A Complete History And Evaluation Of The Patient And Not Solely On The Presence Of The Required Number Of Dsm-Iv Characteristics.

Drug Treatment May Not Be Indicated For All Patients With This Syndrome. Drug Treatment Is Not Intended For Use In The Patient Who Exhibits Symptoms Secondary To Environmental Factors And/or Other Primary Psychiatric Disorders, Including Psychosis.
