Hello! I am 20F and I recieved a late ADHD & ASD diagnosis. I struggle with some anxiety, and I know theres the big thing ab stimulants making ASD or anxiety symptoms worse. So my question is, if you have anxiety + ADHD or ASD + ADHD, which stimulant medication has worked the best for you and why? Thank you

      I just started Prozac, and I've been on extended release Adderall in the past. I was having some negative side effects, so I switched to immediate release Adderall and sometimes only take half a pill at a time. I like the way Prozac manages my anxiety/depression symptoms, and the adderall helps me when I need to get work done. I think the immediate release works for me because if I'm having negative side effects at any given time, they don't have to last all day

      I’m on lexapro (MDD, GAD, PTSD) and concerta (ADHD). I got diagnosed last year and I’ll be 30 in November. I should’ve been on it a long time ago but couldn’t afford it 🫠 those have REALLY helped me in so many ways. I had to have them bumped up but best thing I’ve ever done for myself. I just wish i did it sooner. Just don’t skip or miss days. That could be dangerous 🥺

      Hey there! Personally Adderall XR has been a complete life changer for me. As long as you don’t have a history with addiction and you “take breaks” (my breaks are on the weekends and days I don’t work) then this is a great medication that will help you focus and almost completely got rid of my ADHD caused anxiety. There are a few issues with it though. In my case I have a hard time falling asleep if I take it after 8am, I get irritable, and at the beginning I was exhausted every Saturday when I took my “break”. It’s worth it in my opinion!

        @Cash_Money I'm on Ritalin and its good as shit, but I agree that adderall is a game changer.
