Managing Treatment

Menopause and ADHD Meds

“On some days, my stimulant medication works wonders. On others, it has almost no effect. Could this have anything to do with the fact that I’m going through menopause?”

Fluctuating hormones sometimes affect the action of ADHD meds. That may be the case if the variable effect of your medication seems to follow a monthly pattern. Otherwise, you might simply be taking too low a dose. Consult your doctor.
