Brief answer....it can definitely be taken but must consult your doctor before starting it Detailed answer... Hello, Thanks for the query. ADHD is a very common developmental disorder affecting roughly 1-6% of population. There are various psychiatric disorders which mimic ADHD and hence needs careful evaluation by a psychiatrist.People dealing with high level of stress may exhibit symptoms of ADHD. While there are specific symptoms which help in differential diagnosis,the matter is not straightforward as there are various other comorbidities associated.Thus if patient is suffering from associated anxiety or depression,this is treated first and then a proper evaluation made and treatment started. I advise you to consult a psychiatrist and get yourself evaluated and treated under his proper professional guidance. I hope it helps,however you may revert to me for any further query. Best of luck Thanks
