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

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Perhaps (or not)

If you are on adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) daily and have not had any problems you can try the supplement and the most likely side effect will be fast pulse/ increased blood pressure/ feeling of racing/anxiety - if you get no change or other side effects then you can likely tolerate the combination.
With any side effects stop the supplement

In brief: Caffeine not needed

You might find taking caffeine and Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) gives you too much stimulation resulting in a rapid heart rate and elevated blood pressure.
If you skip the caffeine you might save yourself from a health risk.
