Adderall XR: Reducing Hyperfocus & Anxiety...?

Hi all-
I am new to this forum, but not to the world of ADHD and medications. I have been taking Adderall XR (45mg in the AM) and have found that it stays in my system for between 12-15 hours, which has the unfortunate side-effect of messing with my sleep quite often.

The side-effect that is most troublesome, though, is the hyperfocus that accompanies the drug. I've tried lowering the dose, adding Klonopin and some more intense major tranquilizers, but I have found little success.

Has anyone been able to find a supplemental medication that has worked to reduce the hyperfocus, as well as anxiety, that comes with taking Adderall XR?

Any advice would be appreciated. In advance, thanks.

-Kinsey

I have anxiety and I am on Adderall XR 5mg but I was given Ambien at first but it was a horrible expierence for me! I now take 5mcg of meletonin (herb supp.) and cut it in half to sleep. You can also buy the 3mcg. I don't take 5mcg bc its too much.
