Excellent article available at Medscape:

Managing ADHD in an Adult With Psychiatric Comorbidity

Not sure if you have to register to gain access but registration is free.

I've found some helpful information via the Medscape site's
Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder Resource Center
http://www.medscape.com/resource/adhd

Thanks for all the listings... I am have forwarded them onto my niece that is a single mother of a child with ADHD - and she has her hands full already with raising four kids on her own.


PC has been a life saver.

The only problem I have with CHADD (which my psych dr recommended) is there is a fee to join per year. Same Dr recommended Driven to Distraction.

The books my ADHD Life Coach recommended are:

More Attention, Less Deficit - Success Strategies for Adults with ADHD by Dr. Ari Tuckman (He is having a free discussion on the 29th at addclasses.com)

Is It You, Me, or Adult ADD? (there is more to this title) by Gina Pera

I am getting the first for me, the second for my husband (who is adrift on a sea of estrogen in an ADHD ship as me and both our daughters are ADHD). I'll let you know how those are.

Some sites (mainly for women) that I have found that are good are:
momswithadhd.com
womenwithadd.com (Or ADHD, can't remember right now)

These are run by life coaches who specialize in ADHD.

ADDitude.com - this is a magazine and forum, though the site is not very ADHD friendly with the ads, but it is the price of doing business like that.

Hope this helps!
