The authors' research indicates that most adults with ADHD continue to struggle with substantial number of ADHD symptoms and high levels of dysfunction despite a sizable syndromatic remission. Furthermore, in-attention was more persistent than hyperactivity or impulsivity as children progress throughout adolescence and into early adulthood. These results stress the critical importance of carefully choosing the appropriate definition of remission in longitudinal studies of youth with ADHD and that symptom clusters and Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition-defined ADHD subtypes (ie, combined, inattentive., or hyperactive/'impulsive) should be considered separately.
