Please help me figure out the right Med combo.. Since starting some of these meds I feel fear not my usual anxiety just flat out fear over nothing. I also have a nauseas stomach EVERY day. I feel stuck and lost since I'm no doc but maybe somebody will know what to do! 

I am desperately trying to find a medication that completely cures my anxiety like Xanax but still gives me focus and energy like Adderall

I take both, but adderall heightens my anxiety at times, makes me cry sometimes for no apparent reason and occasionally I'm told makes me testy. It gives me focus and energy.. The Xanax alone makes me very calm, collected, and FINALLY quiets my fast moving thoughts and anxiety  however it gives me absolutely zero energy or motivation. 

I am perscribed daily:

40mg of Paxil aka Peroxotine  (I take at night)

70mg Adderall daily (30mg extened release /40mg amphetone salt tabs)

50mg Trazadone (nightly)

  UNPERSCRIBED MEDICATION  

Hydrocodone either 7.5mg or 10mg roughly 6 a day for knee and back pain 

I suffer with debilitating anxiety over seemingly tedious tasks.. Highly unmotivated feel almost frozen sometimes. so I take roughly 4/5 .25mg Xanax a day when possible or 4/5 1 mg Ada van throughout the day as well as night. 

Xanax and adderall work well I guess but I really feel like its Mesing up my stomach somehow.

Lastly I've heard a lot of things about Paxil is it dangerous? I have no sex drive upset stomachs etc 

please help!!

This is something you really need to talk to your DR about.  The right meds for me came with time; yours might take less time, or more time. 

I have never heard of a benzo "curing" anxiety.  They help, but don't cure.

Who prescribes your meds?  That person is the person who would be the ideal person to talk to about this.

 

In terms of the medication that are not prescribed according to your list, these are my thoughts:

Hydrocodone is a prescription med.  At least in the US it is.  I've never known it being any other way.  Does a DR monitor you on it?  IMO 6/day is a high dose.

Xanax and Ativan are prescription meds.  Who prescribes these for you?

The adderrall is also prescribed.

Idk about paxil, but everyone reacts differently and you won't know until you try it.

The SSRIs Zoloft and Prozac are both stimulating, and might be better options. Or the SNRIs Effexor and Cumbalta could also provide stimulation. This could result in being able to reduce your Adderall dose, which is very high and likely contributing to your anxiety.

Also - Can you try a different form of amphetamine, such as Vyvanse? It is much smoother and can cause less jitters than Adderall.
