Problems With ADD And Maybe Anxiety

Patient

Q: Im 14, I have ADD (I cant concentrate at all...), Im on a generic Ritalin but it does nothing, My friend gave me a Adderall XR (I know I shouldn't have taken it but I don't feel like I can deal with this anymore) I took a 25mg in the morning, and another around 10:30, but it was amazing, I felt like the best day of my life, I could talk to anyone (I have problems doing that any other time, I did my work and it was awesome) I just felt...Happy. I took about half this morning and a full one at about 8, But I dont feel a thing, I want to go to a doctor and see if I maybe need anti-anxiety meds? It took all my anxiety away, I could get along with anyone I talked too, I just want to feel like that all the time, but I dont know why my tolerance built up so fast, Please give me advice..
