My Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) wasn't diagnosed till I was in my late thirties. By that point, as you can imagine, I had developed coping strategies to get me through life, especially at work. So when my doctor asked if I would like to give treatment with medication a shot, although I couldn't imagine how it would help me, I agreed. We first started on Ritalin. I didn't notice any positive effect, as the heart palpitations I experienced were too distracting, and I discontinued the treatment after three days.

The second group, the control group, included adults without ADHD or any psychiatric disorders and who were not taking psychotropic medication. Dr. Sobanski found that those with ADHD slept less, fell asleep later and woke up more often than those without ADHD. In addition, the quality of their sleep was poor...
