Description ADHD is often comorbid with anxiety disorders, with rates approaching 25–35 % in many samples of patiens. Recent studies indicate that anxiety in ADHD may partially inhibit the impulsivity and make working memory deficits worse. The subgroups may have differing clinical courses, and pharmacological responses. Studies examining stimulant response in children with ADHD/anxiety have recently yielded conflicting results. Atomoxetine was efficacious in reducing ADHD symptoms in patients who have ADHD with comorbid anxiety and was well tolerated.
