View Full Version : Can I mix Adderall and Dexedrine?

I'm on 60 mg Adderall XR. I wanted to try switching to Dexedrine because the Adderall wasn't doing it. My doc prescibed 5 mg dexedrine IR tablets. I took them and didn't like them at all. So now I have a full bottle of dexe's. I'm wondering if I added a 5 mg dexe (or 2) to my 60 mg Adderall, that would take care of the problem. Can you take the drugs together? Don't want to mess my system up.

Do your best to consult with your doctor before you go ahead and take things into your own hands. I know doctors can sometimes be frustrating, but it's important to keep things clear and straight.

Mixing the two won't harm anything. Adderall is practically dexadrine anyways, a little different balance which makes it seem smoother to some people. Because Adderall releases two more or less equipotent doses four hours a part (30mg x 2 in your case), the 5mg instant release seems like it would be pretty ineffectual. An approx. 15% increase in dose generally won't effect much.
