Yes, this was true of Ds and myself as well.

Nail biting/picking at skin is not uncommon with ADHD; hand wringing and hair twisting could be tics and are not necessarily just manifestations of anxiety.

The main symptom of GAD is the almost constant presence of worry or tension, even when there is little or no cause; this was not true of my ds.

Strattera works similar to some antidepressents which could possible cause a problem of it's own.
