Presented by: Vatsal G. Thakkar, M.D.

Anxiety and ADHD are interwoven for many people, which often creates confusion about the true sources of distress and impairment, not only for the sufferer, but also for the clinicians who might assess and treat them.  Which came first, the anxiety or the ADHD?  Does one of them cause the other?  Is there really only one true or primary condition, and the other one just a phantom condition?  Does treating one condition make the other condition worse?

In this presentation, you will learn about:

  • The complicated inter-relatedness of anxiety symptoms and ADHD
  • Which anxiety disorders most commonly occur with ADHD
  • Physiological theories as to why these two phenomena could be related
  • Successful treatment options for those who suffer from both

Vatsal G. Thakkar, M.D. is on faculty at the NYU School of Medicine and sees patients at his private practice in both Manhattan and Westport, CT.  He originally trained in diagnosing and treating adult ADHD by working on clinical trials at NYU starting in 2006.
