For people with ADHD+Anxiety+Depression, what meds have you found that helped you? Right now I’m on an SNRI (Fetzima) and a stimulant (Vyvanse) but I haven’t found much relief for my anxiety or depression.

      I take zoloft and adderall. Honestly it's the best combination I've had and I've had alot of them. Vyvanse did not work for me.

        @MikeyO Oh and to add. Give the zoloft time. Start small and just keep moving forward. I gave up all stimulants to ease the anxiety more.

      Also, there's a non stimulant medicine called clonodine that's also used to treat ADHD and to help control impulsivity. I tried it before due to impulsive behavior, and I almost fell asleep while driving because it's so sedating. So I will never take that medicine again.

      I take Effexor for the anxiety and depression. Nothing for the ADHD, I tried a few things several years ago and didn't agree with anything.

      For ADHD I am taking Adderall, and for anxiety I am taking Klonopin (Clonazepam) but I am being tapered off of Clonazepam. Clonazepam really worked for easing my anxiety and giving me relief from panic attacks. Although I want to take something different for my anxiety and stop the Clonazepam because I have become dependent on it.

        @Halcon yeah my anxiety is chronically high which isn’t what benzos are indicated for. Maybe Buspar?

          @Davchun I've tried buspar, but that did nothing for me. My anxiety got extremely bad 10 years ago, and I would constantly get panic attacks and benzos were the only thing that actually worked for me. I still have bad anxiety, but there's been time's where I've run out of Clonazepam and since it's a controlled substance, not many doctors will prescribe it and I've had to go to the ER a couple times to get an emergency refill. I've taken Ativan before, and the way it was explained to me is that Ativan is for when you're having a panic attack, but Clonazepam helps prevent the panic attacks.
