Anxiety Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine): Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is an activating compound and can make anxiety worse and taking Ativan controls that but tremors can be a presentation of other issues too should need med changes as there are other combinations that can be considered for adhd and anxiety.
Pl contact your doctor to make changes
