May 12, 2022New York – ADDitude magazine, the world’s most trusted resource for people with ADHD, is recognizing Women’s Health Month with the publication of a groundbreaking survey of 1,500 women that reveals ADHD symptoms are most impactful and life-altering during menopause. The survey responses, published in the summer issue of ADDitude out this week, augment a feature article on ADHD symptoms and treatments during menopause by neuropsychologist Jeanette Wasserstein, Ph.D., who has submitted the ADDitude research as an abstract to the annual European meeting of the International Neuropsychological Society (INS) in Barcelona, Spain, this July.Dr.
Wasserstein and ADHD expert, Mary Solanto, Ph.D., plan to use the ADDitude survey data and participants as a launching pad for the first scientific research to date on menopausal women with ADHD — both diagnosed and undiagnosed — later this year.Quantitative health insights gleaned from the ADDitude survey include the following:The qualitative stories and experiences submitted by ADDitude survey respondents were no less staggering or important. “Brain fog became unmanageable,” wrote one 45-year-old mother of two who entered perimenopause at age 41.
“Distractibility increased and my inability to complete work tasks in an appropriate amount of time decreased. I began spending all night working just to keep up.
Things that I used to have unconscious strategies to deal with were no longer manageable.”Dr. Wasserstein, in her INS abstract, said that hormonal change during menopause, which is associated with cognitive and socioemotional complaints, may make previously masked symptoms of ADHD impossible to ignore.
