great extends of anxiety and ADHD at the same time

User Profile
Hi I am wanting to know if it is possible to have great extends of anxiety and ADHD at the same time? I realize this may be a hard question to answer. I feel oftentimes I have anxiety more towards nighttime when I am past like 7 A.M. in my day because I experienced trauma then from some experiences I had with my family when I was younger. I also have a hard time paying attention and focusing/concentrating during the day. It seems for me that the time of day can influence the mental health difficulties I encounter. I have always felt this way that night is worse for anxiety and the day is worse for concentration and depression. I take Ritalin 10mg 3x/Day for anxiety at the lower dose because I get jittery but also Zoloft at bedtime 50 mg. I have Lorazepam, Clonazepam, and Hydroxyzine on hand as well. I am afraid of becoming addicted to benzodiazepines so I hardly ever take them because of how strong they are as anxiolytics. It's just the concentration + anxiety @ bedtime for me

Welcome to e health forum.

It is not ethical to advice regarding your psychiatric medications dosage without having a first hand assessment of your condition.

It would be best to seek a proper medical opinion from your psychiatrist for proper medical help.
