ADHD and Fear?

My 6 yr old is diagnosed ADHD and ODD. Hes currently on 30 mg of Vyvanse and its going well. BUT. Hes been scared of everything lately, even before the switch to vyvanse. I mean everything, wont go to the bathroom alone wont walk to his room unless I take him, having nightmares. Waking up through the night and coming to my room, doesnt want to leave my side. Wont even let me walk to the car with out tears. Says hes doesnt want to go to school, just wants to be with me. I have never dealt with this. He cries over everything. I mean his two yr old brother is turning on lights for him. Any advice? Is this a phase? Anyone dealt with this?

Re: ADHD and Fear?

I am an adult with ADHD. All I can say is that I have been fearful most of my life and as a child had a lot of fear. What fear really is is anxiety. The ADHD meds can make anxiety worse. I would talk to the doctor about it, perhaps this is not the best medicine for him.
