Clinical Trial Summary

Attention deficit disorder in adults with or without hyperactivity (ADHD) is a common disorder, affecting around 3% of the population. ADHD increases the risk of psychiatric disorders (mood disorders, sleep disorders, personality disorders, addictive behavior), risky behaviors, and vocational difficulties. Emotional dysregulation (ED) constitute a major hindrance in the daily life of subjects, with a great impact on the general functioning and the quality of life of the patients.

The investigators want to determine the characteristics of patients with each type of ED (impulsivity, exacerbated emotional intensity, cyclothymia, borderline personality traits), and study the stability of these traits over time. Since circadian rhythms influence mood and circadian rhythms frequently occur in patients with ADHD, the investigators want to determine if there is a link between ED and instability in circadian rhythms. Finally, they would like to observe whether the ED evolves and according to whether or not treatment is taken
