Is it safe to take folic acid pills with Adderall and zoloft (sertraline)?

Yes: Yes, you can take Folic Acid pills with those medications. However, if the zoloft (sertraline) is because you're depressed, you might benefit more from l-methylfolate than folic acid. L-methylfolate is the active form, and processing may be problematic in many depressed people. It's safe with zoloft (sertraline) and Adderall too. ...Read more

Usually not many: Some doctors recommend having "holidays" from stimulants, for times when not having the best concentration and focus might not matter as much - like weekends, vacations etc. There is little or no evidence that long-term medicinal stimulants taken as prescribed cause any significant damage to the cns, although sleep disturbance/anxiety and hopelessness (depression) may be related. Talk to your doc. ...Read more

Since stopping adderall 2 months ago. Now on Zoloft for attacks, I've been getting these short vertigo feeling attacks when moving around or standing?

Since stopping adderall 2 months ago. Now on Zoloft for attacks, I've been getting these short vertigo feeling attacks when moving around or standing?

Hard to say: You don't say what you were on Adderall for, or why it was stopped. You also don't say what kind of "attacks" you were put on Zoloft for, although I will assume they were panic attacks. Vertigo can be a side effect of many medications, including Zoloft, but can have other causes. You need to talk about this with the prescriber and/or your pharmacist, and get a full physical evaluation. ...Read more

What are the chances i'll gain weight on prozac? Gained weight on Zoloft (sertraline) . I am now also taking Adderall . I'm extremely active and eat healthy as is

What are the chances i'll gain weight on prozac? Gained weight on Zoloft (sertraline) . I am now also taking Adderall . I'm extremely active and eat healthy as is

Hard to say...: ...With any certainty. Usually people do not gain when they start prozac; only tend to see that after they have been on it long term. Also be proactive as much as you possibly can: stay as active as possible, exercise as often as you can, watch what you eat, try not to pig-out when the Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) wears off, be prepared mentally in that way to counteract any possibility of overrating! good luck! ...Read more

Just started taking 150mg Wellbutrin, (bupropion) just woke up because my body was shaking, hot and sweaty, was dead asleep. Also on 25mg Zoloft 20mg Adderall ?

Drug interactions: wellbutrin, (bupropion) Adderall ,Zoloft and other psychopharmacology drugs individually may cause the symptoms you are describing. When taken together there is a synergistic effect and can be very dangerous. (Serotonin syndrome , NMS,Malignant Catatonia, Malignant Hyperthermia, fever) etc. these syndromes are very rare but are possible. I'm not saying you have any of these but your meds need to be adjusted. ...Read more
