Episode 15: Mental Health: ADHD – Rebound, Adult ADHD, and Comorbidity

In this week’s episode, Drs. Berney and Richard respond to listener emails about ADHD. Specific topics discussed include the rebound effect – which is a phenomenon that happens to many children, late in the afternoon, when the medication is wearing off. They also talk review the truth about “adult onset ADHD” and the concerns of comorbidity (the presence of multiple medical conditions) in children. Have a listen and we hope you enjoy. Please, continue to end in your questions and write a comment or review on iTunes!
