Is taking Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and rhodiola rosea a safe combination?

Is taking Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and rhodiola rosea a safe combination?

It's not clear: Adderall has a complex metabolic pathway, including the liver isoenzyme cyp2d6. Rhodiola rosea is a potent inhibitor of cyp3a4, a different enzyme system. There are no reports of specific interactions between Adderall & rhodiola, but rhodiola has been linked to increased heart rate in patients also taking Lexapro (escitalopram) (metabolized by cyp 3a4 & 2c19). I suggest caution because of incomplete data. ...Read more

Non Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) Days: I assume you are calling those days you are not taking adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). I don't see why that happens. All medications for add/adhd should be administered every day including weekends and holidays, to prevent falls in the level of the medicine during those days off. If you work with a psychiatrist, you must have 30 days supply of your medications, and also practice behavioral exercises to reduce symptoms. ...Read more
