ADHD and anxiety are two extremely common conditions in the United States. In fact, millions of people are diagnosed with either ADHD or anxiety; however, these conditions can also occur together, which is referred to as a comorbidity.\u00a0 Comorbidity is two conditions occurring simultaneously. Some conditions, such as ADHD and anxiety, occur together more frequently. If you are struggling with one or both of these conditions, it can make life quite challenging.\u00a0 Symptoms of ADHD\u00a0 ADHD stands for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. It has two components to the disorder, namely, a problem with attention and focus and a problem with hyperactivity. Some people may have just the attention deficit component, which is referred to as ADD or attention deficit disorder. However, many people do have problems with both their attention span and hyperactivity.\u00a0\u00a0 ADHD may not manifest itself the same in everyone but here are some common symptoms:\u00a0 \tDifficulty concentrating and remembering things\u00a0 \tTrouble following through with tasks\u00a0 \tFeeling continually restless\u00a0 \tDifficulty following directions\u00a0 Symptoms of Anxiety\u00a0 Anxiety is more than just the occasional worry over things that should cause worry. Instead, clinical anxiety results in a disruption of your life because of excessive worry. You also find that the worry is much greater than the problem, making the anxiety exaggerated.\u00a0 People with anxiety also manifest physical symptoms such as stomach upset, headaches, fatigue or insomnia, and difficulty concentrating.\u00a0 How ADHD and Anxiety Overlap\u00a0 Sometimes people get ADHD and anxiety confused. They may feel restless because they\u2019re anxious, or they may be restless due to the ADHD. Another symptom that overlaps is having trouble remembering things and concentrating. When people are very anxious about things happening, it causes them to have problems concentrating. This is normal for anxiety, yet it is also a sign of ADHD.\u00a0 Treatment for ADHD and Anxiety\u00a0 Doctors have different approaches to treating these conditions. Usually, a doctor will prescribe a medication, such as Ritalin, for ADHD. If someone is also suffering from anxiety, the person will likely be referred for counseling. As a result, the person will feel much better after obtaining proper treatment at our ADHD treatment center.\u00a0 There are risks with ADHD medication, however, because many of them are a Schedule II drug, which means they carry the potential for abuse and dependence. It\u2019s important to only use the medication as prescribed, and be sure to seek rehab treatment if you suspect you are misusing the drug.\u00a0 Find Help at Promises Treatment Center\u00a0 Welcome to Promises Treatment Center where we are ready to help you through whatever mental health or substance abuse problem you have.
