Is ADHD a sleep disorder?
A medication that is usually used to treat narcolepsy and excessive sleepiness during daytime also seems to reduce the symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or reduce ADHD. This conclusion endorses the theory that ADHD may be a sleep disorder.
People with ADHD diagnosis have difficulty concentrating and are usually hyperactive. But many people with this disorder are also struggling to fall asleep, staying awake at night, resulting in a tired feeling throughout the day.
