Great question : You will need an evaluation by your doctor to accurately diagnose your condition and make appropriate treatment recommendations. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is a stimulant and can cause anxiety and insomnia. Your doctor can talk with you about alternative options available to you for managing your symptoms.
