Actor Fahadh Faasil Confirms ADHD Disorder At The Age Of 41

Actor Fahadh Faasil

Malayalam Actor Fahadh Faasil recently opened up about his medical condition and said he has ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). This information from the actor shocked the fans. 

Fahadh Faasil ADHD Disorder:

Malayalam Actor Fahadh Faasil revealed that he was identified with ADHD disorder at the age of 41. He mentioned this condition is medically proven and raises the question of whether it is normal for adults to develop this ADHD disorder.

During an event organized by Peace Valley in Kothamangalam on Sunday, actor Fahadh Faasil revealed that he was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 41. Fahadh underlined the challenges of treating ADHD when the diagnosis and treatment start later in adulthood.

Faasil said, "When I reached here, Mr Sabith accompanied me while touring the facilities. There is a disorder called ADHD. I asked him if it was possible to cure ADHD. He told me it is easily curable if it is diagnosed during childhood. I asked him if it could be cured if diagnosed at 41. I am clinically diagnosed with ADHD. Even if it's not that big, I, too, have some traits of the disorder." While ADHD is commonly associated with children, undiagnosed, it persists and continues into adulthood for many individuals. 

Fahadh Faasil:

Fahadh Faasil, affectionately known as Fafaa by his fans, is one of the highest-paid actors in Malayalam cinema. He has received numerous accolades, including a National Film Award, four Kerala State Film Awards, and three Filmfare Awards South. His debut film was "Kaiyethum Doorath" (2002), in which he was criticized for his performance. However, this criticism inspired him to become a better actor, a goal which he later achieved.

The actor gained fans with his acting in both Malayalam and Tamil states. After his acting in Chaappa Kurishu (2011) and 22 Female Kottayam (2012), Fafadh Faasil gained attention from Malayalam fans, and following those movies, he delivered constant hits Annayum Rasoolum (2013), Bangalore Days (2014), Maheshinte Prathikaaram (2016), Njan Prakashan (2018), and others. The actor recently delivered a blockbuster hit movie action comedy, Aavesham (2024).

In Tamil, the actor received a positive response for his roles in the films Vikram (2022) and Maamannan (2023). Despite portraying a negative character, the audience applauded his strong acting skills. 

What Is ADHD?

ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is a neurodiverse disorder that disturbs people's behaviour and social interaction. People with this condition will be restless, have difficulties concentrating, and start acting on instinct. These cases are commonly diagnosed in children under 12 years old, but occasionally, signs are not as manifest and are diagnosed later as an adult. 

What Is The Cause Of ADHD?

The exact reason for the ADHD disorder is not found yet. The disease may be passed by family genes. There are a lot of cases when the baby is born during premature births, or in some cases, the mothers of the baby were into smoking or alcohol during pregnancy.

ADHD in adults is a complex and often misunderstood condition that requires a careful approach to diagnosis and management, as it can impact professional performance, personal relationships, and the patient's mental health.

What are the Symptoms of ADHD in adults?

ADHD in adults is different from ADHD in children, and they may have issues with focusing, lack of management skills, forgetfulness, inattentiveness, and difficulties tracking through on tasks. 

What Are The Things That ADHD In Adults Should Do?

  • Exercising regularly can help, especially when the person is hyperactive.
  • Have a proper healthy meal regularly.
  • Program work timetables with help in time management and organizing skills.
  • Associate with people and maintain good relationships with friends and family.
  • Follow the medicines prescribed and avoid using alcohol content.

Fahadh Faasil's opening about ADHD disorder in adults brings a lot of attention to the disorder and awareness among the public.
