ADHD and PTSD
I work at a school and there is a child diagnosed with PTSD as well as ADHD. Looking at a DSM, it seems as if PTSD and ADHD share similar symptomology (impulsivity, irritability, attention difficulties etc..). She is being treated for the ADHD with Vyvanse (40mg).

Is this common? I would think that the doctors are overlooking the PTSD and are treating the ADHD instead...and is Vyvanse ok'd for PTSD?
