I was so fortunate that the first medication I tried which was Ritalin gave me immediate relief of my chronic symtpoms of anxiety and my non-stop motor. I had to adjust the dosage, up, twice to get it just right.
I also was taking Wellbutrin for depression. The combination of the two worked very well.
Do you have the hyperactive/impulsive type ADHD or more Inattentive? Or combination?
