Hi Dolly,
Adderall is a Psychostimulant drug used mainly for Attenion Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
Adverse effects of Adderall includes nervousness, dizziness, increased heartbeat, headache, etc.
So the symptoms you are experiencing can be due to the side effects of Adderall.
It is advisable that if your symptoms are still persisting , please contact Emergency Department for proper medical care.

The variety of symptoms you describe fit both Anxiety and adderall effect.
> The first thing to do is to STOP adderall.
> The next thing is to see Psychiatrist - they are the ones qualified and trained to give good counselling with or without medications
Good luck
