I've been on Adderall for a year. I've had ADHD my whole life, plus Panic Disorder.

Although Adderall has made a huge difference in my life by boosting my attention span/focus, decreasing my impulsivity & allowing me to sit still for once, it's increased my anxiety at times as well. Before starting Adderall I had maybe one panic attack/month. Recently I've had as many as 3/week. I'm not totally blaming the Adderall for this, but it definitely hasn't helped my anxiety. So my dr has put me on Xanax & wants to keep me on Adderall as well since it's helped me so much. So far so good.

Expect to have side effects with Adderall in the beginning... it's unavoidable. But as your body gets used to the drug, the side effects will subside. The only negative effect Adderall has had on me (that has lasted) is it made me lose a lot of weight. I'm 5'6" & I went from 125 lbs to 103 lbs which is way too thin for my taste. Adderall will kill your appetite. Also the anxiety got worse, but the Xanax has helped work that situation out.

Anyway, good luck. Hope Adderall works for you. Keep us posted.
