Adderral made me “tired” , I took a nap my first dose lol but it was a nap my body and mind needed for YEARS— it calmed my hyperactivity , I could feel the tension in my legs melt away: it doesn’t make me tired anymore , it just relaxes my body and mind.

I’d struggled with panic attacks in the past , not related to the adderral but bc traumas and anxiety— learning mindfulness really helps me with physical stuff.

Also , how much sleep do you get on a general basis ? What is your diet like ? Magnesium can help with nervousness .

Def talk to your doc , there are others medications . I tired concerta before adderral and I was a monster. Did not treat any adhd symptoms , yet still gave me side effects. So maybe another med could work
