Is it possible to take the following lineups without fear of overdose? I don't want to turn out like Heath Ledger, but I also don't want to fail at creativity.

Adderall 50-60 mgs.
Wellbutrin ?mgs
Seroquel XR (morning) 300 mgs
Seroquel IR (night) 300 mgs


Dexedrine ?mgs
Wellbutrin ?mgs
Seroquel XR (morning) 300 mgs
Seroquel IR (night) 300 mgs

I'd rather take the dexedrine since it's purer amphetamine, I read. And the Wellbutrin to offset the drowsiness of Seroquel XR in the morning.

So tell me what you think...

Fail at creativity? Creativity in your drug routine?

Something like that.

I was being a little bit playfully sarcastic. Anywho. I was asking what you meant about the creativity part.

My opinion on the meds? I'm assuming you're going to ask your doctor...personally, I really, really didn't like the combo of Wellbutrin with Adderall, but then again I don't particularly like Adderall. I've never taken Seroquel or Dex.

Yeah. I left an aggressive retort, but I decided to replace it with six periods.

About creativity. Just because you ask for it, doesn't mean it isn't best for you.

Yeah Wellbutrin and Adderall isn't too cool I bet. I would basically want to take it with the Dex and Seroquel...

Dexedrine isn't "purer," it's just that it consists solely of dextroamphetamine, whereas Adderall consists of four types of amphetamine. They are both "pure" because they're both made to medical standards - these aren't street drugs. Adderall's not cut with baking soda.

Those are pretty high starting doses of Adderall. Regular doses range between 10-30mg XR qam. Do you have a preexisting tolerance to stimulants?

Seroquel will diminish the effects of adderall or Dexedrine. Seroquel inhibits the flow of dopamine. "mediated through antagonist (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Receptor_antagonist) activity at dopamine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dopamine), norepinephrine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norepinephrine), alpha-adrenergic receptors (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Alpha-adrenergic_receptors&action=edit&redlink=1), histamine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Histamine) and serotonin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serotonin)
receptors"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quetiapine

I take 25 mg of sroequel at night to help me sleep. It knocks me out. Be careful and monitor your blood sugar cause chronic use at high dosage might cause diabetes.

Wellbutrin on the other hand is a mild stimulant and works on the same receptors as adderall so be careful of overdosing. start with a small dose and see how it works. I am taking 300 mg of the SR along with 60 mg of adderall (after 2 years of titration) and it works really well for me. last dose of adderall and wellbutrin around 1 pm so I can sleep. First week on wellbutrin expect confusion and dizziness but after that less fatigue more focus, energy and motivation. I quit smoking cigarettes too. The same active ingredient in wellbutrin is marketed as a smoke cessation medication called zyban. I also have not had a drink in 4 months. I used to drink a beer or two on weekends. But drinking on wellbutrin makes me feel weired with no buzz or pleasure. Even though I sleep sober after one bud light. I would have a really bad hangover for 4 days, extreme depression and big headache. On the plus size it enhances libido and drive. Lost some weight too. Negative side sweating. Stay cool and drink gallons of water. Overall, I am happy with wellbutrin.

hope that helps!

I forgot to mention. For wellbutrin go for brand or generic made by watson which is actually authorized generic made by the brand manufacturer (GSK). Generic made by Teva will worsen your symptoms and you would think that wellbutrin is not working for you.

Seroquel does not conflict with Adderall. At least, when I take it at night. It looks like you can have manic depression and ADD and they seem independent. Like, I can be psychotic and distractible and I can't take Adderall since it will exacerbate my psychosis. But now I'm more depressive and the Seroquel isn't holding up at 300 mgs (it worked better for lessening psychosis).

Taking Adderall is like killing two birds with one stone. Works for the depression side of manic depression and for ADD (distractibility and hyperactivity).

I still take the Seroquel at night as it is an off button to my on button, Adderall.
