It depends upon: Upon which side effects were talking about. Most of them to go away within the first week or two. However, insomnia can persistent and require either additional medication for a change of the dose or change in the timing of the dosing. I recommend that you discuss those issues with your prescribing doctor. Have a great new year.

No: What you could do is contact the manufacturer. Show them proof that you were legitimately on this medication and quite often they can mail you samples for free. There's a special form to fill out, and i believe your physician also needs to fill out a portion of the form. Don't buy it on the internet. It is a schedule ii drug. Dea can prosecute you for this without a valid prescription.

Is it safe to mix Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) with thermogenics?

No: I would add that, it seems like you are trying to lose weight? Taking Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) can also cause weight loss and low appetite. I am afraid that if you don't eat properly, you could actually create some other problems you don't want. Thermogenics may increase one's blood pressure and heart rate. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) can do that too. Taking both together is not advised and should be discussed with your dr.

Is it safe to take a 70mg Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) pill?

Wha? : The biggest dosed pill of Adderall is 30 mg. You must mean vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) which goes up to 70 mg. The dose of stimulant is determined by the response of the patient & the absence of side effects. Your doctor is best positioned to help decide which dose is best for you. As long as you tolerate the medication, the actual dose is unimportant.

Yes: The alcohol increases toxicity of amphetamines. The alcohol and citrus juice will alter the liver metabolism. I do not approve of adderal in adults.
