Macushla68, I wonder if having ADHD is the cause of depression due to not enough dopamine and neurotransmitters not functioning properly or if depression can be totally separate from it. And if all ADHDers are doomed to depression or what the percentage is. Curious if you were diagnosed with depression prior to ADHD too?

It does sound like hormones can make symptoms worse. I found this article about women’s hormones: https://www.additudemag.com/women-hormones-and-adhd/

Spacecadet59, good to know! It’s been 3 days on 10 mg and not feeling a difference. Thinking may need increased dose.

Penny, thank you much for the articles!
