Adhd symptoms anxiety

Common Questions and Answers about Adhd symptoms anxiety


Avatar f tn Yes, anxiety can mimic ADHD. When your anxiety is lessened, so will your symptoms which mimic ADHD. Our child suffers from severe anxiety and her teacher thought that she also suffered from ADD/ADHD. But, when the anxiety was lessened, so too were the symptoms similar to hyperactivity. Often anxiety is co-morbid with depression - sounds as if you found someone who understands anxiety issues.
1543592 tn?1293386614 new to the site... experience anxiety and depression often... also diagnosed ADHD *** well so I am not sure if they are related? ... anyways.. I have just been getting this odd feeling lately that I am just going to die.. I am not suicidal in ANY form but It's constantly in the back of my head.. does this happen to any else?
Avatar m tn Yes it is quite possible that that is the case. Usually the biggest question is ADHD versus anxiety.... both can impair attention. And sometimes the way we figure out which it is is to try a medication and see what the effect is on attention.

Avatar f tn Yes, absolutely. Actually, a person with ADHD is more likely to experience some type of anxiety or depression because they are hyperactive. No worries if you do have anxiety though, however. You just need to keep it under control, which might be hard considering you have ADHD. If you feel like you may have anxiety and cannot keep it under control, it would be best to consult a therapist or maybe a doctor for some medication.
Avatar f tn I have depression anxiety bipolar and now they have diagnosed me with adhd, everything really finally makes sense for the years and years my life has been a revolving door. I just feel alone and lost, people that don't have these issues have no idea the daily demons you have to face, is there anybody else out there?
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm 18 years old I've been having anxiety since I turned 16. I have ADHD and so does my dad he's constantly yelling and driving me more crazy. I need people's opinions in June I performed oral sex for the first time with this guy I've known for 5 years, he had bronchitis and was on antibiotics I developed symptoms right away thinking I had an STD I got tested 6 days later and it came out negative but I still kept thinking I had something.
Avatar f tn My daughter was diagnosed with ADHD can anyone tell me if alcohol triggers angry outburst, impulsive behavior and ADHD symptoms? I use to blame it on the ADHD but I think she may be an alcoholic as well. She gets violent during her drinking bindges and has blackouts while she's awake, stays up for hours giving people around her plain ole hell.
Avatar f tn I am glad your doctor realized that anxiety is a very common co-disorder with ADHD (usually caused by the ADHD). I do hope that you also learn coping mechanisms for the anxiety - if the ADHD is now under control, you should find it much easier to do so (won't happen over night though). Hopefully, with your ADHD under a certain degree of control, many of the situations that have caused you anxiety will lessen.
Avatar n tn I assume you are taking vyvanse for ADHD? A side affect of vyvanse is anxiety symptoms. Propranolol is an anti-anxiety medication. So your doctor may be giving you the propranolol to help counter any of the anxiety side affects you may get with the vyvanse. The best thing to do is to call your doctor and to ask him/her what the drug is being prescribed for. It is always a good idea for your own benefit to know what you are taking and why.
Avatar m tn Do you think if i did the adhd meds it would help stop my anxiety attacks? I take 1# 1mg xanax at night to sleep and 3# vicodins a day for neck arthritis.Do you think i should ask for an anxiety meds for the day with the adhd meds or just the adhd meds? the xaxan also helps with my sore neck at night also......
1248235 tn?1268881737 Obviously I was hesitant because I did not believe I had ADHD and knew that if I did It would not cause me to have Panic/Anxiety Attacks... So it does all depend on your symtoms and how you are feeling. I personally knew I had Anxiety by putting all my strange symtoms together, you know yourself best. So do your reseach on Anxiety and you will know, trust me.

Avatar f tn I realize it’s most likely whatever symptoms depression and anxiety are described as. This depression/anxiety has been worsened due to choices INCLUDING and not limited to the described ADHD medications. I say it like that because I felt as ****** without the medications as I did with them. Also as described, without anything, I feel A DIFFERENT FEELING OF ******. In other terms, I feel different symptoms of depression and anxiousness.
Avatar n tn I'm hoping someone here can help, perhaps a Ph.D. or someone with knowledge/experience of medicines-- I have been diagnosed ADHD since I was a little kid (early grade school) and diagnosed with social anxiety at 17yrs old (towards the end of high school). I've been on and off multiple medicines for both (I've been on 5-10 different drugs; see my personal feedback below on some of the meds if you are interested in that information). I also very much think I have OCD.
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with severe anxiety problems which led them to believe that i have adhd which causes those symptoms. I am 32, at 21 was put on low dose of klonipin for attacks I tried to get off and started drinking. Then they started me on a host of adhd meds which i gave up as finding the right one was hard. at 32 i still take a low dose of klonipin and my therapist put me on vyanese which did nothing and now put me on mythelin or ritalin 10mg 2 day.

Avatar f tn You have received good information and some contradictory recommendations. the medication your daughter is taking is a stimulant and a stimulant can increase anxiety and obsessive-compulsive symptoms are the child's way of trying to cope with the added load of anxiety. I suggest that you try to see a child psychiatrist to help you sort out the best course of action.

Avatar m tn OCD is one of the anxiety disorders - just wondering - could it be possible that the ADHD is a misdiagnosis? You might want to ask your son's doctor about this. By the way, sensory issues are often co-morbid with anxiety issues so that point was expected. Anyway, just a remote possibility ....
