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.

Much better idea to wait it out than treat side effects of one drug with another. ...Read more
