Abstract
Objective: The aim of study was to asses biological rhythms in drug-free ADHD patients with healthy controls in a cross-sectional study.
Methods: 50 adult ADHD patients %26 female) between 17 and 42 years old (M=27.76 SD:6.80) and healthy controls (%56.6 female) between 18 and 63 years old (M=31.39 SD:8.12) were recruited from Bakırköy Mental Health Hospital. Participants were assessed with clinical interview, Wender-Utah Adult ADHD Rating Scale and the Biological Rhythms Interview of Assessment in Neuropsychiatry (BRIAN).
Results: Adult ADHD patients scored higher on total scores (t=8.75, p<0.001), eating patterns (t=2.55, p<0.001), sleep patterns-social rhythm (t=3.41, p=0.001) and activity levels (t=3.0, p<0.001) in regarding to biologic rhythms. In the BRIAN subdomains; activity levels (t=4.59, p<0.001) and sleep-eating patterns (t=3.62, p<0.001) were also significantly different between the two groups.
Conclusions: our findings suggested that there was a significant difference between ADHD patients and healthy controls in most dimensions of biorhythm.

Key words: ADHD, biorhythm, chronotype, adult
