In brief: No, ma'am

Interesting question that i haven't thought about since one of my own kids was blessed with "giftedness", adhd & vesicoureteral reflux.
It all worked out. Thank you for checking it out. I don't know what i'd do without our local school nurses to help me take good care of my patients. Please let me know if you have further questions.

In brief: Not directly

Moreso, if ADHD medication were to increase anxiety rather than indirectly help to you reduce it.
In fact GERD can be associated with anxiety so anything that would help reduce anxiety would attenuate to GERD and the opposite is true. Take care

What about vesico-ureteral reflux?
Dr. Carlos Barrios
Thanks Dr. Fricke, there was a similar question elsewhere about GERD. I will generate an answer for this one.
