Can ADHD Cause Anxiety?

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and anxiety disorders are separate conditions that commonly occur together. For example, up to 50% of adults with ADHD may have an anxiety disorder, and around 25% of adults with ADHD also have generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). Children with ADHD are also more likely to develop an anxiety disorder.

Treatment can help improve ADHD symptoms and thus ease anxious feelings. This article explains the connection between ADHD and anxiety, as well as what you can do to feel less anxious. Read more in Verywell.
