Anyone else notice some kind of increased anxiety with fast acting ritalin?

I'm on wellbutrin 300mg and with modified release I hardly get any anxiety just some tension in my jaw/cheeks.

Maybe vyvanse will be even better? I'm quite lost in this jungle of medication and don't really know what to use.

Ritalin is not bad. Vyvanse is different and could be better but depends on your personality.
I think it is Wellbutrin that can make some anxiety. Dont you feel like being on a to high dosage?
You might should try to play with the dosages of wellbutrin and ritalin.
I was on 45-60mg of Ritalin IR over 2 years and tried to add Wellbutrin but Wellbutrin made it "too much" for me.
Sadly I never tried to decrease ritalin in combination or there is no 50mg Wellbutrin.

Ritalin gave me horrible mood swings but I am also bipolar so that may have something to do with it.

I'm gonna drop ritalin I've never experienced any kind of relief or improvement. I hate beeing depressed and anxious all the time everything is boring. Maybe this ADHD-PI and ritalin/concerta big no is true.

How does your anxiety express like?

Is it like adrenaline?
Is it social anxiety?
Is it worrying?
Is it totally psycho paranoia?

Sorry, i think its is not only my bad english but also a linguistic problem because everyone feels different.

Don't worry I appreciate your time sir.

Worrying, feeling useless and emotion goes down and I get this suicidal feeling. My sleep is horrible never rested and need drugs to sleep, had a fight with a friend two days ago and I've been feeling like ****....I've got an appointment next monday and then I'll get Vyvanse(?) but everything feels hopeless. Maybe I need some time off and find the right meds....
