I'd be more concerned about taking the Xanax than meds for ADHD. You can become addicted to Xanax (occasional use is okay but it could become a problem at some point) whereas stimulants for ADHD are not addictiveto those with ADHD when taken as directed.

Are you diagnosed with a specific type of anxiety? Or is it more of a situational anxiety? Then again, in some cases, anxiety is secondarily caused by ADHD and may remit when the ADHD is treated.

I have GAD, as does my daughter and my sister, and we all take Buspar for the GAD and a stimulant for our ADHD (my sister and daughter take Adderall XR and I take Vyvanse).
