January 27, 2020Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), postpartum depression, and climacteric mood symptoms disproportionately impact women with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD or ADD), according to a new study published in the Journal of Psychiatric Research.1 The study found that women with ADHD more commonly experience symptoms of hormone-related mood disorders, and those symptoms may be more severe than those experienced by women without ADHD.Study participants included 209 adult female patients with ADHD (ages 18-71) from an outpatient ADHD clinic in The Hague, Netherlands.

Seventy of the participants had irregular menstrual cycles; 35 were peri-or-postmenopausal; and 174 were of reproductive age.
