Psychiatric comorbidity is common in patients with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) across the lifespan, but the nature of these comorbidities differs in adults and adolescents compared with children. The relationships between and boundaries of ADHD and its comorbidities are still imperfectly understood, but the impairment they cause increases with age. Comorbidity may alter the patient's response to ADHD treatment and often requires treatment that is independent of and distinct from the treatment for ADHD.
