Strattera was my first approach to treating ADHD. I took it for several months and quickly maxed out at 100mg with little theraputic effect. Bluntly said, the only thing it did was make me impotent. The adderall works great, but I think it and all other stimulants meds can aggrivate anxiety.

I did express my concern with addiction to benzo's, and the doc agreed. However, seemed to think the chance of addiction would be lessened when taken prn. She dispensed 14 tabs, and suggested taking no more than three a week. So, I'm not terribly concerned with chronic addiction. I've been doing this for two weeks now, and I'm fine on the days when I don't take xanax.

As for other non benzo anti-anxiety meds, they all fit the group of SSRI's and SSNRI's and they DO NOT mix with stimulants. I learned that the hard way.

My question still is if there is anyone who has taken benzo's with stimuants concurrently, and what has thier experience been? As for me, the combination works great, but it just doesn't logical to mix uppers and downers.
