ADD MEDS & ZITHROMAX: I find no interactions of azithromycin and adder all in. Medscape drug data base . However azithromycin and adderal can affect the QTC electrical impulse in your heart. This is a measurement in a ECG (EKG). It's best to get an electrocardiograph done to check your QTC segment - to see if you are vulnerable . Discuss this with your doctor this week. Wish you well.
