Wierd on Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine): Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is a stimulant, so it increases arousal state. As a result, some people can develop anxiety. If xanax/alprazolam resolves this sensation in you, this may be the case. Even if this is the case, please call your doctor/prescriber to discuss your medication reaction. ...Read more

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. It is hard to switch tracks after 5 years but I would give your new doctor a chance ...Read more

Will Xanax (alprazolam) get rid of Adderall feeling?

This can be addressed without adding a potentially addictive medication like xanax (alprazolam). ...Read more
