28% Of Referrals To A Mood & Anxiety Clinic Had Undiagnosed ADHD

This study shows what we adult ADHD coaches have known for a long time. Only 5% of adults have ADHD. But, 28.4% of referrals to a tertiary-care mood and anxiety clinic had undetected ADHD. ADHD was also diagnosed in 22.6% of patients referred to the clinic for treatment-resistant depression.

Adults who fail to respond to antidepressant therapy may have underlying attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and not treatment-resistant depression, as is often assumed, new research suggests.  Many people with ADHD are getting misdiagnosed with depression and ADHD is getting ignored because medical professionals are STILL often not properly trained on ADHD. The antidepressant medications they’re taking (usually SSRI’s) are not working because they have been misdiagnosed with just depression, vs ADHD and depression. While you can have depression for standalone reasons, job loss, divorce, death in the family etc, if you have ADHD and do not have it diagnosed and properly treated they ADHD symptoms will often lead to becoming depressed, anxiety disorders or both. A study on ADHD and Depression by T. Sternat et al. at the START Clinic for Mood and Anxiety Disorders, Toronto, Canada was presented at the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA) Conference 2016: Abstract S2-10, April ...

We describe the effects of LDX (50mg and 70mg) on the Sheehan Disability Scale (SDS; exploratory endpoint) from both studies. Design: The SDS was assessed at baseline, Week 6, and Week 12/early termination. Analyses included mixed-effects models for repeated measures for the examination of SDS total and domain score changes and a generalized estimating equation model to assess dichotomized remission status (remission [total score ?6] versus nonremission [total score>6]). Results: Least squares (95% confidence interval [CI]) mean treatment differences for SDS total score change from baseline at Week 12 were -2.80 (-3.98,...
