Is it ok to take Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) XR and a preworkout supplement with caffiene and beta alanine in it?

On 50 mcg of Synthroid (thyroxine) for mild hypothyroidism. I also have high blood press and tachycardia. In on topeol for. Could Synthroid (thyroxine) cause cardiac effects?

On 50 mcg of Synthroid (thyroxine) for mild hypothyroidism. I also have high blood press and tachycardia. In on topeol for. Could Synthroid (thyroxine) cause cardiac effects?

Unlikely: Synthroid (thyroxine) can cause high blood pressure and tachycardia if the dose is too high. The only way to prove this is to check your thyroid level. If the level is normal, i would look for another etiology for the symptoms above. Synthroid (thyroxine) 50 mcg is a very low dose and is unlikely to be the cause for your symptoms. See your doc to get your labs check. Good luck. ...Read more

Can hypothyroid symptoms be fast heart rate and insomnia? Will adding cytomel to Synthroid (thyroxine) help?

Can hypothyroid symptoms be fast heart rate and insomnia? Will adding cytomel to Synthroid (thyroxine) help?

Maybe hyperthyroid: Hyperthyroidism (too much circulating thyroid hormone) will often produce rapid heart rate and insomnia - along with other symptoms like diarrhea, weight loss, and jitteriness. Low thyroid may cause weight gain, sluggishness, coarse/dry skin, and constipation. Ask your care provider about your symptoms. Please do not "freelance" with Cytomel or synthroid, (thyroxine) as this may harm you! lgromko md. ...Read more

No: There are no significant interactions between prozac (fluoxetine) and caffeine (or sugar). You may be experiencing an elevated mood since you are on the prozac (fluoxetine) and have more energy.

Can I drink Advocate spark energy drink mix which contains vitamin and amino acid supplement with being on Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine)?

Can I drink Advocate spark energy drink mix which contains vitamin and amino acid supplement with being on Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine)?

Caffeine caution: From what I found, there is 120 mg of caffeine in an 8 oz. Spark energy drink, which is similar to amount in 8 oz of coffee. Too much caffeine can increase heart rate, raise blood pressure, anxiety and cause insomnia. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) has similar side effects. Monitor your caffeine content especially while taking Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). I hope this helps. Best wishes. ...Read more
