Can you clarify your query?  Normally one would not mention the two in
the same breath.  Are you asking if someone has done research on
various aspects of various prostaglandins in people with and without
ADD?

Can't imagine you would "experience" the two on some occasion!  Have
you been studying some such connection? Why do you ask?  Have you
reasons for thinking prostaglandin production or response to
prostaglandins are different in ADD?  (n.b.: there are many
prostaglandins)

Some relevance of prostaglandin function to ADD is not inconceivable,
but generally people studying the one do not study the other.  I myself
have been interested in possible neuroimmune aspects of mild head
injury and a few other conditions, so it is not such a big leap--but it
is a leap, so far as I know.

If you have some clues, please share them.
