Hi everyone,

I am forwarding you this information that was presented at an ADHD Support Group in Montreal for those of you who were not there.

There is research going on in Montreal on ADHD in adults! Besides the obvious wanting to help the cause, you may be interested to find out that if you were not diagnosed officially, there will be an evaluation to determine if you indeed have ADHD. I know diagnosis is not always easy to access so here’s your chance.

A study being conducted at McGill University in Montreal on ADHD adults is recruiting healthy men and women with ADHD (18 to 45 yrs. old) who are NOT currently taking ADHD medication (e.g. Ritalin, Adderall, etc).

Prior diagnosis is not required. If you do not have an official diagnosis, you will be tested to ensure that you have ADHD.

What is the study about?

They are studying the relationship between ADHD and dopamine, a chemical messenger that occurs naturally in the brain. This will help them understand what causes ADHD and why stimulant medications help reduce symptoms in some people.

What’s involved?

4 sessions of 1 to 4 hours arranged at your convenience. Sessions include:

  • an interview
  • a complete physical examination
  • PET and MRI scans
  • a few short psychological tests.
  • Participants will receive one dose of the ADHD medication Dexedrine ONCE.
  • Participants will be compensated.

  1. Hello,

    I am interested in knowing whether you will be conducting a research project in the fall 2016. I have not been diagnosed but have symptoms of adult ADD.

    • I’m not a researcher. I was only helping a researcher look for candidates but that research has been closed for a while. Sorry!
