According to Dr. Harold Levinson, a New York physician, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may develop due to inner ear problems and their related issues of balance, coordination, and energy regulation. Inner ear concerns may also lead to dyslexia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and panic disorder, he claims. Dr. Levinson’s book, Total Concentration, suggests that inner ear concerns may lead to dizziness or motion sickness, which can be related to ADHD symptoms. He suggests treatment with anti-motion sickness medications, especially when taken with other medications, including antihistamines, stimulants, vitamin B complex, and antidepressants.

No studies have found a link between ADHD and inner ear deficiencies. There has not been enough research to prove this treatment effective. In addition, Dr. Levinson's research goes against many known facts about ADHD’s causes. Therefore, anti-motion sickness medication is not recommended as an ADHD treatment option.
