What is the link between ADHD & Anxiety?

In this two-part series, I discuss the link between ADHD and anxiety. This is an important relationship to address because anxiety is ADHD’s most common comorbidity, so there is a very clear link between the two.

Moreover, there are important implications when trying to treat both ADHD and anxiety.
