Adult ADHD and Women: What it looks like and why it is often overlooked.
KEY POINTS: ADHD is under-identified and under-treated in girls and women. Recent reviews indicate that ADHD is equally prevalent among males and females, and equally impairing. Women with ADHD may also experience anxiety or depression, which are more likely to be identified and treated. Existing treatments for ADHD can be helpful when adapted to the needs of women.
