We’ve known for a long time that ADHD symptoms continue into adulthood for a majority of children diagnosed with the disorder

We’ve known that these adults have more traffic violations and car accidents, substance abuse and incarcerations.

A new study has found that medication in adulthood significantly decreased the likelihood of criminal behavior.

The study of over 25,000 Swedish adults found that when ADHD adults were taking medication, only 9% committed a crime. When men were not taking their medication, the crime rate soared to 37%.
