I take 40 mgs of Adderall everyday due to being dxed w/ ADHD. My daughter is also ADHD and she has tried a number of stimulants, Ritalin was really not good for her anxiety and mood swings. I would say that Adderall is much smoother than Ritalin, it lasts longer but you don't feel the initial onset or drop down effect like with the ritalin.

I would also add that I was extremely extroverted until I hit my early 20's when I became extremely introverted. No meds were involved, so it was a change that really was just me. I also deal with the inability to go places, see people, socialize, even when it is really important to me or is something I *really* want to do. I finally got a consult that diagnosed me as bipolar in addition to the ADHD.

Something to keep in mind, the stimulants do make a difference with ADHD but may unmask or cause the introverted anxiety and fear. You should really talk to a psyche-doc and tell them the trouble you're having. I cannot offer any real help but I wanted to share my own experiences with you. I am taking Adderall, Prozac and Amitriptyline at this point and don't know if it's helping anything.
