> 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 thought I'd go through the roof when I was prescribed dexedrine too, as the main symptom of my depression is anxiety. Dexedrine was a god send though, It was one of the crucial components of my remission. I think what Ritch said is right, it seems to enable to me do more things, (I'm much more social) and not just ruminate, in that respect it has long-lasting anti-anxiety effects too, I actually am able to do things to improve my life tangibly, rather than just rid myself of the anxiety.
