THURSDAY, July 12, 2018 -- Young athletes with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) might be at higher risk of developing depression and anxiety symptoms after a concussion, a preliminary study suggests.
The study, of nearly 1,000 college athletes, found those with both ADHD and a history of concussion scored higher on measures of depression and anxiety. That was in comparison to athletes without ADHD and those with the disorder but no history of concussion.
MONDAY, May 21, 2018 -- The number of U.S. kids accidentally or intentionally overdosing on ADHD medications may be on the rise, a new study suggests.

MONDAY, May 21, 2018 -- A pregnancy drug that has been banned for decades may increase the risk for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) generations later, new research suggests.
The study found that the grandchildren of women who took a synthetic estrogen, diethylstilbestrol (also known as DES), to prevent pregnancy complications between 1938 and 1971 are more likely to have the disorder.
