Drug interaction: According to my sources, there are no interactions between theses two medications. Therefore, as long as they both are prescribed for you, they can be taken as prescribed.

A 25-year-old member asked:

Can taking adderral to treat ADHD cause worsening adhd?

ADHD Treatment: Generally speaking, no. But if the medication (adderall) is the wrong "fit" for a person, it can cause other problems like mood swings, irritability, and anxiety which may further exacerbate the underlying adhd. These problems may outweigh any benefit of the medicine and make it appear that the adhd is worse. In such cases, trying a different adhd medicine may be advised.

Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine): Safe, but antacids interfere with absorption & can lower efficacy of adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) as well as food. That is why it is recommended that Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) be taken on empty stomach.
