Here we aimed to determine the relationship between oxytocin levels and impulsivity, which is an important aspect at Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) clinics.

This thread is meant to explore the relationship between oxytocin levels and AD(H)D.

Re: "oxytocin levels and impulsivity"

There're some articles about oxytocin-dopamine correlation,for instance:https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23850525.
According to this article (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26168929) serum oxytocin levels of subjects with ADHD were significantly decreased compared with those of neurotypical controls.
There's a designed study to use ox in adhd here:http://www.adhd-federation.org/filea...Adult_ADHD.pdf. But i couldn't find any article about using ox treatment in adhd. I think oxytocin treatment may be tried in adhd treatment as alone or in combination with other medicines.
