One of the perks of having ADHD is that we often get two disorders for the price of one. ADHD has high rates of comorbidity with other mental health conditions, meaning that many people with ADHD have more than one disorder. But it turns out we may be able to treat two disorders for the price of one as well. Some evidence for that comes from a new study showing that in people with comorbid ADHD and social anxiety, ADHD meds can improve symptoms of both disorders at once.
