Can I mix Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and nyquil?

Can I mix Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and nyquil?

Yes, but....: There is no listed drug interaction between Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and nyquil so it is ok to take the two together. However, Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is usually taken in the morning (to minimize insomnia) and nyquil is usually taken at night (because it can be sedating.) these are two opposite effects and should be avoided for that reason. Also, there is a drug interaction with Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and dayquil (increased stimulation). ...Read more

Can I take Nyquil with 2 mgs of Xanax (alprazolam) for sleep about 7 hours after taking my last 30 mg dose of Adderall IR? I am only prescribed Xanax (alprazolam) not Adderall.

Can I take Nyquil with 2 mgs of Xanax (alprazolam) for sleep about 7 hours after taking my last 30 mg dose of Adderall IR? I am only prescribed Xanax (alprazolam) not Adderall.

These are serious drugs, be careful. Your body is a valuable possession, take care of it! Be well! ...Read more

How can Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and nyquil work together?

No problem.: Presuming that you are using both meds appropriately & in doses that are effective for you, there is no problem with taking your usual prescribed Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) in daytime + short-term night-time use of nyquil. There are better meds (in both categories) but if these are effective for you, then the combo is not worrisome.

I took Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) XR 10 mg 12 hours ago. Can I take NyQuil now to get rest because I am also fighting a cold? The adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is not prescribed.

Not a good idea: Insert mandatory scolding here. The answer to your question depends on which NyQuil you are taking. Some contain pseudoephedrine or phenylephrine which would be dangerous. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is safe to take however it does cause drowsiness the next day. Adderall begins to wear off after 10 hours. Much better idea to wait it out than treat side effects of one drug with another. ...Read more

Amphetamine positive: Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) will show up as a positive drug test for amphetamines. There is nothing in nyquil which will show up on a drug test. Nyquil just has a lot of alcohol in it. ...Read more
