    Psychologist says I exhibit strong signs of ADD and I have GAD but thinks that Adderal may be a good choice at it helps you focus and by doing that it brings down your anxiety so that you get accomplishment daily. To me that seemed a little odd being that its a stimulant. She is going to consult with my shrink and get back to me.

    Your thoughts?

    It would lead to a decrease in anxiety if the anxiety is performance-related. Thus, an increase in performance could lead to a decrease in anxiety. This wouldn't apply to GAD though.
