> Okay, I guess I'm stupid, but how does a stimulant help if you have anxiety. I can see how it would help with depression. I think I would go through the roof if I ever tried adderall. Or does it have a paradoxical effect? Fondly, Phillipa

I think what happens is that it allows you to focus on one thing and your mind isn't going off on all sorts of ruminative tangents. Of course, if it makes you *hyperfocus* on something unpleasant then it's probably going to make things worse. Wellbutrin was the worst for provoking anxiety for me. Ritalin also caused quite a bit and Adderall somewhat.. but it was just a generalized yuck feeling I got. Dexedrine I found to indeed have a calming effect---but it didn't work as well for my attentiveness like Ritalin or Adderall... strange. I never got panicky in any way whatsoever on dexedrine.
