Anxiety and ADHD
Anxiety & ADHD in my 7 yo
Recently we had a full psych profile done on our 7 yo daughter. What we found out surprised us. Double diagnosis - anxiety & ADHD. She had been taking Focalin, but the person that did the evaluation thinks the Focalin may be increasing her anxiety so we are going to try something else. The pediatrician immediately suggested Prozac or something similar. I’m not a huge fan of antidepressants in kids. Does anyone have exp with this approach - good or bad? Are there not ADHD medications that help with anxiety too? Please help!
