Assessment
Differential diagnosis:
1. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Unspecified Type. ICD-Code F90. 9
2. Anxiety Disorder, Unspecified. ICD-Code F41. 9
3. Obsessive-compulsive disorder, unspecified ICD-Code F42. 9 (Carr et al., 2016)

Primary diagnosis:
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Unspecified Type. ICD-Code F90. 9 (Carr et al., 2016)
As evidenced by manifestation of more than five symptoms for over five months including but not limited to lacking attention to detail, difficulty in sustaining attention, easily distracted, poor organization/forgetfulness, and restlessness (American Academy of Family Physicians, 2019)
Obstacles to treatment:
Patient has a problem with forgetfulness which could affect medication adherence.
The absence of a close relation for psychological support and to help in self-organization and self-management such as a sibling limits chances for optimal outcomes (Nimmo-Smith et al., 2020)

Plan Patient will be prescribed for Adderall XR (amphetamine) 20mg Tab PO QD as starting dosage. The intention to begin with extended release (XR) is informed by the patient’s lacking organization and forgetfulness. The medication will be maintained for four weeks during which a review will be conducted.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): The intention of CBT in ADHD is to train the brain to respond more appropriately to the primary roles of the patient’s life (Nimmo-Smith et al., 2020). In the patient’s case herein, the ADHD is affecting his studies and the role of CBT is to enable him shed off the negative elements influencing his behaviors and lifestyle (Nimmo-Smith et al., 2020). The CBT will be sustained for four weeks with a maximum of two sessions each week. Patient will be seen again in two weeks.
