Sorry for the shouting. I take 15mg of AdderallXR, and it is the ONLY thing so far (along with other forms of amphetamine) that touches my dx'ed ADD as well as a lift to my horrific depression. The thing is, I have extreme anxiety (GAD + Panic attacks) and the Adderall seems to help those things. (Well, the anxiety, anyways.) I REALLY have to be careful, as I do have psychosis (latent, so far). My pdoc is REALLY pushing Cariprazine, but my insurance doesn't cover it. I currently take 4mg of risperidone a day, and it helps cap psychosis and some anxiety/panic. I want to go back on haldol, but he is younger, and seems reluctant.

Any suggestions? Is the risperidone a neuro-protective factor in using Adderall? I actually did very well on Vyvanse, risperidone, and olanzapine. I might suggest that next.

Thanks,
Jay
