Even a minor case of ADHD can not be "cured." What does happen is how you treat it. As you get older, you do gain more control over it. Medications can help. Many adults with ADHD are able to take medications only when they think it is necessary (before a report is due, or a important business meeting), and so they are able to deal with their ADHD. Information about ADHD and how it effects you is the key to dealing with it. The more you know the better your chances are to deal with it. A very helpful book overall is "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley. And two sites aimed at the adult ADD sufferer that you might want to check out are ****.com and http://jeffsaddmind.com/for-first-time-visitors. Hope this helps! Best wishes.
