I would suggest getting on anxiety meds in addition to the adderall. I am on adderall Xr with adderall ir in the afternoons and Zoloft. My doc also said if the adderall seemed to stop working that she could help me take a break from it and start it up again. I guess taking a break makes it effective again. As I understand it, adhd often creates actual anxiety disorders, so the adderall probably doesn’t touch the anxiety disorder. Of course the anxiety could be a side effect of the meds too. I was on the anxiety meds before I was on adhd meds and they have both helped alleviate different, life interrupting symptoms. Good luck. Ask your doctor.
