What Triggers ADHD in Adults?

ADHD is a mental health condition that can’t be cured or prevented. In most cases, ADHD has been present since the adult was a child, although it may go undiagnosed if the symptoms are mild or are written off as being part of the child pushing boundaries or just being a kid. The symptoms of ADHD can change as people get older, so it can look completely different in an adult than it did when they were a kid. While ADHD is part of a person’s biological composition, certain triggers can aggravate symptoms and bring on ADHD episodes.

Common triggers for these episodes can include:

  • Stress
  • Poor sleep
  • Certain foods
  • Food additives
  • Technology
  • Overstimulation
