Women & ADHD
We are thrilled to welcome back Lisa and Phil from ADHD 360 as we discuss the often taboo subject of ADHD in women. We will cover how ADHD is often misdiagnosed as depression and/or anxiety in Women and the overlap of AD(H)D with the premenstrual syndrome (PMS & PMDD), migraine, menarche (onset of puberty) and the onset of menopause. In the discussion, we may also dig into the role of our mainly male-dominant society and what this means even for scientific research.
