Adderall IR is the worst for anxiety.

Concerta didn’t increase anxiety for me
Vyvanse idk this confused me from noticing if anxiety was worse or not
Adderall XR is decent but maybe a little more anxiety but at least I can get stuff done

Concerta has been best for me in terms of managing anxiety and to prevent a crash at the end of the day.

Adderall XR + Propranolol for anxiety is the best combination I’ve found. Even a low dose (10mg) makes a huge impact

Vyvanse/Elvanse drastically reduced my anxiety. Turns out not being able to do things I needed to do was very anxiety-provoking lol.

Adderall made my anxiety worse at higher doses and made me fall asleep at lower ones. Haven’t tried any other ADHD meds but between those two, Vyvanse is much ‘smoother’ so I don’t get that anxiety spike like with Adderall.

I’ve been on every anti-anxiety and antidepressant med under the sun and they all did either nothing or made me worse. The only exception was Wellbutrin which I took before the ADHD diagnosis. It helped a bit, albeit not nearly as much as Vyvanse does, but that could be a decent option if you don’t want stimulants (just be very very slow at tapering off if you decide to go off it).

I was on XR, really was noticing the anxiety over the past few months as I went from 20 to 25 mg a day. Switched to Vyvanse and it’s wayyyyy better, much smoother, no anxiety

I’ve been back and forth on vyvanse and adderall IR and a combo of adderall XR and IR for a while now. For me, vyvanse causes the most anxiety but I find that it’s also really dependent on what i do outside of just medications. If I make sure to eat a high protein breakfast and get a workout in early in the day, my anxiety lessens significantly on any medication.

Adderall XR definitely helps with my anxiety. Increased anxiousness is one of the ways I realize I forgot to take it (I put my meds in a day of the week dispenser each week so I can tell if I forgot)

It can be painful for some women struggling with infertility which is the purpose of two separate audiences.
