Narcolepsy and ADD

"What's the link between narcolepsy and inattentive ADD?"

by Larry Silver, M.D.

Narcolepsy can have its onset in early adulthood. Not so with ADD, a chronic and pervasive disorder with behaviors noted from the earliest school years. They would not first appear at age 20 or 21. Discuss your question and concerns with the physician who made the diagnosis.
