> One of the main concerns proposed is the abuse potential of this medication.

Do you get high off it? If you don't, I doubt you'll become addicted to it.

>Im hoping that this medication could get rid of the weird, anxious nervous feeling (I've had it before Adderall) that I sometimes get during the day when I think too existentially. anxiety relief.

What sort of existential worries do you have? Are they recurrent in nature?

> What do you think about Xanax XR?

I don't like benzos overall, but they get the job done.


> Im not sure about your Vyvanse suggestion because 70mg = 30mg. IR which is half of what Im
prescribed now.

I thought 70 mg Vyvanse = 60 mg Adderall IR

>neurologic feel is superior to eliminate symptoms.

Maybe I'll have to revisit Adderall

> In studies, higher doses Latuda were not significantly more effective than the lower doses. How do you know it helps with anxiety at such significant levels before I titrate up tho?

Two psychiatrist friends I know read studies and relayed the results to me - one was in a journal.

> Alert, ADHD, Awake, Active

I don't think their are any studies that show Nuvigil helps ADHD.

> I wish you could find it? Can you find it now? So, I really need to DOUBLE the suggested dosage?

Csn't find it, but did found some conflicting evidence: "In the clinical trials, doses up to 400 mg/day as monotherapy were evaluated; however, no additional benefit was seen at 400 mg/day compared with 200 mg/day" - rxlist.com

> I agree, but I was just being realistic since my PDOC probably wont double it immediately.

doesn't hurt to try.

>Am I dumb to you?

Hardly

>Youve suggest Zonegran in another thread which is probably worse than topiramate in terms of executive function.

They're about the same.

> Anyways, it boils down to your thoughts about anything Xanax XR and my meds.

Xanax does nothing for OCD
