is anyone taking adhd medication with anxiety medication?! i think adderall worsens my anxiety while it helps me complete tasks on time. tbh i sometimes feel funny that i take medications that are counteracting each other. anyone else taking both???♡

      I was amazing on Prozac and Adderall but Prozac gave me tunnel vision so I had to switch to Celexa but that made me super emotional. Now still on Adderall but dx of bipolar put me on vraylar which is going well.

      So...I'm technically taking an adhd medication (I'm taking it for something else) and an anxiety medication. For me I tend to be tired all the time because both of them are meant to "calm me down" in aiddferent ways.

      I take both klonopin and adderall (as needed). To me adderall lets me undergo more stimulation and stay on top of it, like staying above the cloud of noise (if that makes sense). Sometimes I take them both at the same time and it doesn't seem to conflict, but both of them kind of do the same thing for me anyway, just make my brain quieter and make doing a lot of different things feel smoother

      I started Adderall after my antidepressants were fully kicked in. I don't really take it regularly but I found that higher doses of Ritalin and Vyvanse made my anxiety worse, but not the Adderall so much as long as the anxiety was already under control. Not sure as I started a long time ago, but my Dr started me on a low dose of Adderall and raised it when needed after figuring out it didn't cause me anxiety. Not sure what my Prozac did was when I started Adderall but it's fairly high now.

      I’m about to start both of these meds!! I used to be on antidepressants, antipsychotics and other meds supposed to help bipolar all I was allergic to so now I’m trying these to help my symptoms from my other illnesses and disorders 😩😂😭 how have they been for you? You said they interact?

        @AsiaRose i would say adhd medication definitely makes me more sensitive to stimulus.. so increases my anxiety level. However it rly helps me w daily performance so 😥😥😥
