?Drug interaction: Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) should not cause the side effects you mention. In fact, it's given for ADD/ADHD to improve forgetfulness, distractibility and poor focusing. Contact prescribing doctor without delay to review how you're feeling. Possible serotonin syndrome or too much serotonin in your system can result from drug interaction which might be serious. Good luck.
