Re: Salon: Is ADHD Actually undertreated?

The fact that a lot of people probably obtain the diagnosis merely to get the scripts for entertainment and/or final exams/papers purposes surely does not help the levels of misdiagnosis. I do think it's probably misdiagnosed, especially in children. I think that in adults and especially girls/women, it is probably more on the underdiagnosed side.
