Advice & Tips: After starting treating my high blood pressure problem, I had a decrease in anxiety, followed by a mild but general feeling of "well being". Those effects are still present these days, after so many years. When I run out of the medicine and stop it for a few days, the old weird anxiety and general bad feeling about myself comes back. Start taking this medicine was a challenge back in the day, since because of my ADHD i would never remember to take it, or if I already took it. Today its easier and I haven't forgot to take it for a long time... thanks to Adderall!
