The relationship between ADHD and suicidal spectrum behaviors (SSBs) remains uncertain. We conducted the first meta-analysis on the association between ADHD and SSBs taking possible confounders into account. Based on a pre-registered protocol (PROSPERO-CRD42018093003), we searched Pubmed, Ovid and Web of Knowledge databases through April 6th, 2018, with no language/publication type restrictions, and contacted study authors for unpublished data/information. From a pool of 2,798 references, we… 
Medication for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder and Risk for Suicide Attempts
TLDR
St stimulant medication was associated with a reduced risk of suicide attempts in patients with ADHD, and nonstimulant medication is unlikely to increase the risk ofsuicide attempts.
Long-Term Suicide Risk of Children and Adolescents With Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder—A Systematic Review
TLDR
A systematic review of published studies which investigate the suicide risk of ADHD patients with longitudinal design found a positive association between ADHD diagnosis at baseline and the presence of suicidal behavior and/or attempts at the follow-up visits.
Pathways From ADHD Symptoms to Suicidal Ideation During College Years: A Longitudinal Study on the i-Share Cohort
TLDR
ADHD symptoms seem to have no direct but indirect effect through both self-esteem and depressive symptoms on suicidal ideation, and an indirect pathway via a combination of self- esteem, then depressive symptoms, was identified.
Examining the effect of smoking on suicidal ideation and attempts: A triangulation of epidemiological approaches
TLDR
The results suggest that, despite observed associations, there is no strong evidence for a causal effect of smoking behaviour on suicidal behaviour, and suggests that further research is needed into alternative risk factors for suicide which might make better intervention targets.
Suicidal ideation and executive functioning in pediatric cancer.
TLDR
An elevated number of children treated for cancer experience SI and related neurocognitive problems and further assessment of the connection between executive functioning and SI in pediatric cancer populations is needed.
Examining the effect of smoking on suicidal ideation and attempts: triangulation of epidemiological approaches
TLDR
This was the first Mendelian randomisation study to explore the effect of smoking on suicidal ideation and attempts, and suggests that, despite observed associations, there is no clear evidence for a causal effect.
Suicidal behaviors and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD): a cross-sectional study among Chinese medical college students
TLDR
ADHD-I and ADHD-C were strongly associated with suicidal behaviors independent of comorbidities, suggesting the importance of addressing ADHD symptoms in suicide prevention.
Correlations between Quality of Life, School Bullying, and Suicide in Adolescents with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
TLDR
Tri triangular correlations between school bullying, QoL, and suicidality are identified, indicating possible pathways from school bullying to suicideality, and the originating or mediating roles of personal competence and psychological well-being.
Traditional Scales Diagnosis and Endophenotypes in Attentional Deficits Disorders: Are We on the Right Track?
The concept of ADHD has changed widely through the history of mental health classification manuals. In the past three decades, the number of ADHD diagnoses has hugely increased worldwide. One of the
Suicidal Risks in 12 DSM-5 Psychiatric Disorders.
TLDR
Suicidal risks were particularly high in BD with psychotic or mixed features as well as with substance abuse and in severe MDD with hospitalization, whereas SMR for suicide was greater among women, presumably reflecting very low risks among women in the regional general population.

Association between attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and asthma: a systematic review and meta-analysis and a Swedish population-based study.
TLDR
The combined results of the systematic review and meta-analysis and a population-based study support a significant association between asthma and ADHD, which remained even after simultaneously controlling for several possible confounders in the population- based study.
Association Between ADHD and Obesity: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.
TLDR
This study provides meta-analytic evidence for a significant association between ADHD and obesity/overweight and possible underlying mechanisms and the long-term effects of ADHD treatments on weight in individuals with both ADHD and Obesity.
Suicide risk in attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
TLDR
A selective review of current literature was conducted to explore the factors which contribute to suicidal behavior and self-harm in those with ADHD and indicates an association between ADHD and suicidal behavior.
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and suicide: A systematic review
TLDR
There is a positive association between ADHD and suicidality in both sexes and in all age groups, and recognizing ADHD, comorbid conditions and suICidality is important in prevention.
Association of Risk of Suicide Attempts With Methylphenidate Treatment
TLDR
The results do not support a causal association between methylphenidate treatment and suicide attempts, and the observed higher risk of suicide attempts before treatment may reflect emerging psychiatric symptoms that trigger medical consultations that result in a decision to begin ADHD treatment.
Drug treatment for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and suicidal behaviour: register based study
TLDR
This study found no evidence for a positive association between the use of drug treatments for ADHD and the risk of concomitant suicidal behaviour among patients with ADHD, but pointed to a potential protective effect of drugs for ADHD on suicidal behaviour, particularly for stimulant drugs.
Prevalence and correlates of adult attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder: meta-analysis
TLDR
Prevalence of ADHD in adults declines with age in the general population and the unclear validity of DSM–IV diagnostic criteria for this condition can lead to reduced prevalence rates by underestimation of the prevalence of adult ADHD.
Prospective follow-up of girls with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder into early adulthood: continuing impairment includes elevated risk for suicide attempts and self-injury.
TLDR
Girls with childhood ADHD maintain marked impairment by early adulthood, spreading from symptoms to risk for serious self-harm, and the viability of different diagnostic conceptions of adult ADHD and their linkages with core life impairments is addressed.
Self-Injury and Suicide Attempt in Relation with Trauma and Dissociation among Adolescents with Dissociative and Non-Dissociative Disorders
TLDR
Adolescents with DD were found to experience higher rates of SIB and SA than the other groups and total trauma scores were also found to be significantly higher in DD group followed by non-DD and CG respectively.
Screening for Adult Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in a Psychiatric Outpatient Population with Specific Focus on Sex Differences
TLDR
Results indicate that women might be affected by ADHD in a comparable manner as men; this emphasizes the importance for the awareness of ADHD in both sexes in clinical practice.
