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.

      HAVE BIPOLAR DISORDER TYPE II, AND ALSO I HAVE  SOCIAL PHOBIA. I HAVE HISTORY OF DRUG ABUSE, AND I HAD BEEN ADDICTED TO XANAX FOR 2 YEARS. THEN, BY FOLLOWING ASHTON MANUAL, I FINALLY MANAGED TO DROP OFF THESE MEDS GRADUALLY. AND I HAVE BEEN CLEAN FOR 18 MONTHS NOW. BUT MY LIFE GRADUALLY BECOMES IMPOSSIBLE AND 1 WEEK AGO I TOOK XANAX( AGAIN) AND IT HELPED ME TO DO DAILY TASKS WITHOUT ANXIETY ISSUES. I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO. I HAVE THE FEELING THAT WITHOUT BENZOS MY LIFE IS NOT AS IT SHOULD BE WITHOUT XANAX I AM LOCKED IN MY HOUSE, BARELY ABLE TO COMMUNICATE WITH STRANGERS, EVEN WHEN NEEDED.

      I hate being on adderall.  I can't seem to work when i'm not on it.  I'm on 15 mg now.  It's working, but I feel speedy & have a hard time sleeping.  I'm wondering If i go down to 5 mg, if I can still get some work done.  
      Does anyone just take 5mg of adderall?

      Hey,
      So about 5pm every day of late, my mood just turns black. I can't buy a neutral (forget positive) cognition or emotion, I start to feel and think very negatively no matter what I do. Of course, I'm feeling and thinking badly beforehand, but it just sinks to another level, or depth if you will. 
      So I'm wondering if it's a med (or meds) that I'm taking that's losing effect around 5pm. I take the following meds - yes, it's a crazy-looking brew I know, but it allows me to function somewhat - at 6am (in milligrams):
      200 Provigil, 2.5 Abilify, 40 Fetzima, 30 Lexapro, 15 BuSpar, 150 Lyrica, 10 Percocet and these at 2pm:
      150 Lyrica, 15 BuSpar and these 4 times a day, where the last dose is typically 2pm:
      15 Adderall 10 Percocet (for chronic pain) and these at 7pm for sleep:
      150 Trazodone, 50 Benedryl It's impossible to confidently predict a "culprit" but if anyone has any hunches, I'd love to hear them.
      For example, today I'm splitting (some of) the 6am batch into two and  taking the second half at 2pm as an experiment. I feel that empirical experimentation might be the way to go because the theory is too complex with this many psychotropic medications in play. 
      Cheers , Pete
