ADHD Medications May Be Helpful for Cognitive Impairments in Menopause

Friday, March 31st, 2017

Some women with no previous history of ADHD symptoms report experiencing unprecedented problems with organization, attention, alertness, and working memory as they enter menopause. I have been working with Neill Epperson, MD and other researchers at Perelman School of Medicine of the University of Pennsylvania to test whether medications used for ADHD might be helpful for menopausal women who experience such difficulties. We have now published 3 scientific papers reporting our positive results. Click this link to read our 2015 paper on this research.
