People with ADHD feel emotions more intensely, more frequently, and more suddenly. For many, emotional dysregulation is one of the most challenging core symptoms of ADHD to manage. In fact, one third of adults with ADHD say the inability to manage their emotions is the most impairing aspect of their ADHD, adversely affecting work performance and personal relationships.

Among the biggest emotional challenges facing adults with ADHD is Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria, an extreme sensitivity to criticism and judgment that seems to exist only in those diagnosed with the disorder. The good news is that certain ADHD medications can relieve RSD for about half of people diagnosed with it.
