The Xanax does help. You're right about the level of concentration. If anxiety is too high, my concentration is horrible (on top of ADHD!). I never really have enough in my system that it severely inhibits me and prevents me from doing work.

I don't think I'll find an AD that is tolerable for me. Not anytime soon. Not until they come out with meds that have absolutely nothing to do with serotonin/NE.

A classmate and I were just talking about our frustration with meds/treatment/side effects etc associated with various chronic conditions we both have. I certainly have more empathy than the average person. Most docs don't know what it's like to struggle like this.

Many don't believe side effects or don't understand how intrusive they are. They don't understand the burden that is placed on a patient to try to be aware of how meds are affecting them compared to no treatment or previous meds, while still trying to live a life.

They get angry when patients are noncompliant. I never would because I admit that I don't always take meds as prescribed or D/C them w/o consultation. Things happen.
