ADHD and anxiety often occur together. When people are anxious, they’re already emotional and on edge. It doesn’t take much for those feelings to tip over to anger.
ADHD is linked to other mental health issues that can also drive angry reactions. These include oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) and depression.
People with ADHD may also have undiagnosed learning differences. Those challenges can add to stress.
