View Full Version : Nervous?

07-22-11, 10:01 AM
I've been on 10mg of Focalin for about 4 weeks now.

Last week was very stressful for me: we lost power in our house for 5 days, had to stay with my parents. My son had a different summer camp that same week, so I had to make different arrangements to shuttle him around, and work had some special demands.

So I felt very anxious. I tend to anxiety anyway, but I wonder if the Focalin might have helped it along.

Now things have returned to normal, but I still find myself getting nervous more quickly.

Time for a new drug, or should I hang in there? I'm seeing my doc soon, so I'll ask her, but I dont' know if this is typical.

Focalin cranked up my anxiety too. I was just switched to Adderall, so we'll see if that helps any. Good luck!
