Rhodiola Rosea in Adults With Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder

Brief description of study

This study evaluates the use of Rhodiola rosea in the treatment of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in adults. Half of participants will receive Rhodiola rosea, while the other half will receive placebo.

Detailed Study Description

Rhodiola rosea is an herbal medicine used for centuries in various medical conditions. Many randomized controlled trials have evaluated its usefulness in stress and fatigue. There were benefits in attention in some of these studies. Mild side effects and beneficial antioxidant properties make reasonable an assessment of its potential benefits in adults with ADHD. To our knowledge, Rhodiola rosea was never studied in ADHD.
