Basic FAA Highlights on ADHD and Piloting
As best I can make out, this is the bottom line for potential pilots with ADHD:
ADHD itself is not a disqualifying condition.
The FAA acknowledges that sometimes that the ADHD diagnosis in the past was in error.
Ifyou have a formal diagnosis of ADD or ADHD, you may need to undergo additional testing in order to receive a medical certificate.
Most medications used to treat ADHD are disqualifying (stimulants and non-stimulant Strattera).
Requires a 90-day period of taking no medication before evaluation.
The FAA requires its own extensive evaluation for ADHD.
