William Dodson, M.D. explains how to solve the three biggest challenges to making your ADHD medication work for you.

In this episode:

  • Why many adults with ADD are misdiagnosed with mood disorders
  • Why shame is the dominant, or “master,” emotion among adults with ADHD
  • Why individuals with ADHD are intensely and uniquely sensitive to being teased or criticized, and to feeling that they’ve failed
  • Why individuals with ADHD can’t muster motivation out of thin air; they must be engaged and interested to start and complete a task
  • How to use this knowledge to succeed in the neurotypical world
