I'm glad you brought that up because I thought I was the only one. I was originally diagnosed with GAD when I was ~8-9 yrs. old [removed
], but my biggest issues are emetophobia (fear of vomiting) and social anxiety. I already had 2 doctors tell me they are concerned about putting me on stims b/c of the anxiety (because of my phobia I was not eating, so my current doctor, who I do not want to go to anymore, thinks I'm anorexic).
enough said, I'm glad to hear there are docs out there that will treat ADD patients who also have an anxiety issue. My therapist says from her exerience docs will treat the disorders separately but simultaneously (ie. like giving you a benzo and a stim), but I really can't say much else. please keep me posted, I would like to know more about treating these two disorders together, and reactions to stims when you have an anxiety disorder as well.
good luck with that I hope it works out well for you!!
