Comment:
I have suffered from ADHD my whole life. after having 4 kids, I decided to try meds again to help my focus. As a stimulant, Adderall gave me intense panic attacks, anxiety, and insomnia. I also completely lost my sense of humor. I felt like the anxiety and stress offset any benefits of focus I might have had related to the drug and after a month I had to switch.
