Do you really think Adderall and Xanax cancel out each other's effects? I have ADHD and anxiety. I'm not looking into taking antidepressants, as I've had a negative reaction in the past. Sometimes Adderall works for my anxiety, sometimes it makes it worse, but Xanax is ruining me!
Did you ever consult a doctor about your question? I'm not a doctor and can't provide you with medical advice, but any time I see someone worried about their medications, I suggest that they consult his/her physician. If the Xanax is ruining you, I think that merits a trip to the doctor. There are many new antidepressants out there as well, so perhaps the doctor can recommend something that will work better than what you have experienced in the past.
If you have already gotten everything sorted out, please consider returning to let us know what you learned. I'm sure there are others who can benefit!

i also take xanax and adderall, but i only take the xanax as needed to sleep. i am currently taking effexor which helps with anxiety and doesn't have to many side effects! (at least in my experience!). Perhaps you should try decreasing the dose of adderall and see if that helps. If not yoga and other relaxing and focusing activities can help! Best of luck!
