Both, because they are one in the same, just different facets of the same disorder. Technically, it’s now all ADHD, but with different subtypes – you have inattentive, hyperactive/impulsive, and combined. This new classification is to address the fact that ADHD is kind of shifty in how it presents in people – people who are hyperactive as kids may become restless and inattentive as adults, girls are more likely to be inattentive, etc. It’s all the same brain wiring, but depending on gender, age, etc., it can present differently.
