What I have been told by my psychiatrist is that there are ‘co-morbid’ conditions. In my particular case, I am ADHD with a co-morbid condition of terrible memory which is either exacerbated by ADHD or exsiting alone. The fist line of treatment is, dealing with the ADHD and hopefully this will aid in the improvement of my memory. The other side of this is that the condition is a separate issue and needs to be treated on its own. As well, at one point I was also told that I might have had bi-polar disorder which would have been treated in the same manner. After further testing, that condition was ruled out.

Either way, ADHD is the over lapping condition which needs to be addressed first and then anything else that it maybe masking or overlapping is typically treated later and as appropriately.
