Also, does it help ADHD? Indirectly, it does. ECT is a treatment for depression, not ADHD. When your depression starts to lift with ECT, you are more able to effectively cope with the symptoms of ADHD and depression, if that makes any sense. Hope this is helpful. Don’t give up.
If I could, I would try ECT again! But I would have to be 100% positive that my psychiatrist was on board and working with me. My psychiatrist was awful in Vegas, she really let me down when I needed her the most. I’ve since moved to another state and ECT is not administered in my area. I’d have to go to another city to do it.
