i dont have a direct answer to this, just some “nice to know” facts related to this topic that you probably already know.
one of the main things with people with hyperkinetic disorders like ADHD is that they need more stimuli then “normal” people to achieve the same level of endorphins and dopamin. that is often why people with the disorder that havent been diagnosed, or dont use medicine tend to do sports, adrenaline based hobbies or even computer gaming. these things give a lot of stimuli, and that is also why lots of people on medicine dont use medicine on days were they do these activities.
