ADHD over age 50 – WebMD

June 6, 2012

For those with ADHD as an adult, it doesn’t go away.  According to the National Comorbidity Survey Replication study published 2006, of those with adult ADHD, 75% were not diagnosed as children.

In my practice it is not uncommon for patients over age 50 to be newly diagnosed. I provided my expertise in this area to the author of an article for WebMD published live this week. The “moral of the story” is it is never too late to get evaluated and seek treatment. Daily functioning can improve at any age.
