      For the longest time I was taking concerta, but it made me feel like a zombie so I stopped taking it and was off medication for a few years, but now I take Adderall and it really helps

        @Weast was there any side effects related to anxiety whilst on adderall? I recently tried strattera which is a nonstimulant after advice from my psych about panic attacks and higher heart rate but had to come off because my heart rate raised about 30bpm whilst being on the lowest theraputic dose.

          @willroscoe I did have increased anxiety when I was taking 15mg twice a day, but now I take 10mg twice a day and Buspirone three times a day for anxiety.

      Adderall is the only thing that worked for me except it took away my appetite and kinda my social skills in that it made me more serious and want to basically build stuff haha. Also sertraline was pretty good but its slower (i hope thats what its called)

        @lazydaisy I’m also taking escitalopram which is also an SSRI like sertaline which was for anxiety but also gave me a quieter mind but did you take adderall at the same time as sertaline?
