I am not soliciting for new patients and I am not taking any new patients at this time.

Anxiety is a huge issue both because this is the natural course of ADHD but because an accumulation of life stressors catch up with you. There are many “-pam” type medications out there and softer ones like lorazepam may be ok. Sometimes you might need to consider an antidepressant that creates more global reduction albeit slower to get going. Then there are meds like buspirone which act really quite differently and can be useful. Older strategies like using antihypertensive pills like clonidine may also be used. Need to consult your doctor
