A : OCD
A : ADHD
ADHD. Stimulant medications
commonly used to treat ADHD can exacerbate symptoms of OCD, especially
body-focused repetitive behaviors like skin-picking or hair-pulling. OCD is
often treated with anti-depressants, however, which usually have no negative
effect on ADHD symptoms. When a patient has both conditions, most doctors
recommend treating the ADHD primarily with behavioral therapy.
