ADHD in College Students

ADHD in college students is important because college is the first time an ADHD adult is out on his/her own, with the protective oversight of parents. The ASRS screener and 18 point symptom checklist are good ways for students and clinicians to keep track of symptoms and the effects of ADHD medications.

ADHD by itself is associated with insomnia and sleep problems, which can have adverse effects on cognition and behavior. Stimulant ADHD medications can effect sleep as well, and a baseline of sleep should be taken before medications are started.
