Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a mental health condition that includes at least one of three distinguishing behaviors: inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. ADHD can interfere with development and/or functioning. It often begins in childhood and can extend throughout adulthood. Comorbid mood disorders are common among those with ADHD and migraine.

In one study 28.3% of the 572 subjects with ADHD also had migraine, whereas 19.2% of the 675 subjects without ADHD in the control group had comorbid migraine.1
