For over 5 yrs I was prescribed both Adderall XR 30mg and Xanax (alprazolam) 1mg by fam dr. Now seeing diff dr and he said these 2 meds no good together?

True: Everyone is different, but generally these medications work at cross purposes, as Adderal is a stimulant and xanax (alprazolam) is a sedative. The concern is that neither will work as well as it should, and you will have more side effects than with either alone.
