The article presents an overview of scientific publications devoted to the study of epidemiology, etiology, clinical manifestations and basic approaches to the treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children. An analysis of the results shows a high frequency of comorbidity between ADHD and emotional disorders (anxiety) that determines the severity of the main clinical symptoms and leads to severe social maladaptation. Inclusion of anxiolytics and nootropics in treatment of ADHD is required.
