Viagra and Adderall...

Are they safe to mix? I am not planning on using them at the same time.

I take my adderall xr in the morning and the viagra as needed usually in the evening. Do you think it is safe to mix them? I use viagra to combat the side effects of lexapro.

Vigra is a vasodialator, so I'd be careful mixing the two. ED drugs have been known to cause blindness due to ocular stroke...

So mixing a stimulant which can add workload to your cardiovascular system combined to a vasodialator might cause problems.

I haven't been back to my doctor to talk to him yet. I was planning on bringing it up next time I see him. I suspected it was dangerous and posted here to get some feedback. Is there something wrong with that? Just because you know something does not make it common knowledge.

I agree... There are no stupid questions in fact - to me it shows your innocence.
And since we're on the topic of arousal: Anyone had any sexual side effects from Adderall? - I read that it can contribute impotence in Drug Info Sheet.
Thanks for the postive comments - keep 'em coming.

there've been a few threads in the men's forum where this has been discussed. from the posts, it seems that it goes both ways, some guys seem to find it dampening their sex drive or causing physical problems, while some of us find that it causes a massive increase in sex drive. it seems that it just depends on the person.

Agreed. My experience is that it has no effect whatsoever. I'm still a sex maniac and perform to 110% in all possible measures.

NB. If people need Viagra, they should be Screened by their Doctors for Heart Disease.

This is really serious. If you do not have good blood flow to your penis, you also do not have good blood flow to your heart, brain, kidneys, retinas (eyes), extremities.

A heart attack or stroke would change your life irretrievably.

Talk to your Doctor !!!

NB. one poster says that this is not available information. Pharmacists can be asked about drug interactions. That is their main job. Public Libraries have PDRs and other drug manuals. Prescription drugs also come with Information sheets. Why the Doctor would prescribe both is beyond me.

Well, Huh...

I take lexapro and found that taking testosterone greatly improves sexual function (or lack of it ) after Lexapro - a bit extremely so, if anything. Then again, I am in my 50's - and most men my age can always use a testosterone "boost". Ask your Dr. about it as it is coming to the forefront of medicine these days.

Thank you, that was a much better response.

I think the primary cause of the erection problems are from peyronie's disease (which is basically internal scarring in the penis which causes blood flow to be diminished) caused by an accident when I was younger. I've already been to a urologist about this and had it diagnosed. Combine that with the anxiety and depression that the disease has caused me, being ADD, and taking a vasoconstrictor (adderall) adds up to a case of ED.

The viagra helped some at first, but the anxiety and depression part was still holding me back. I started antidepressants and my erections/sex life IMPROVED dramatically. I now realize that I had problems again when I started taking Adderall. I'm not sure if it is from the anxiety or just from the lack of sexual interest I experienced. The lexapro and adderrall combination made me feel numb.

I agree that I should be screened for heart disease as it runs in my family, especially since I'm taking stimulant medication. I'll probably set up an appointment for it later this year. I'm definately not ruling it out.

How different are Adderall XR and reg. Adderall?

I've read a good bit about guys having lack of sexual desire or inability to perform while taking Adderall XR. I'm curious how different the XR and the instant release Adderall are, particularly in terms of male sexual side effects.

I take a high dose of regular Adderall (30mgx2 daily) and my sex drive has gone from non-existent before Adderall to thru the roof on it. Perhaps the Wellbutrin XL I take with it contributes, I'm not sure.

I would have assumed that Adderall and Viagra wouldn't safely mix, but that's based on my experience with Adderall and not silly old pharmacology.

It's a great thing that the two are compatible for guys who need to use both of them. I chose to manage my anxiety and depression for several years at the expense of my sex drive. I'd hate to have to choose between treating my ADD and having a sex drive.

Wellbutrin can be the closest thing to an aphrodesiac thats available these days. Yes, theat can certainly be the culprit. Wellbutrin can reverse SSRI induced loss of sex drive - so it can probably increase libido on its own. But thats a good thing.

In general a good thing

Your right that it is a good thing overall, anything that can give people their sex drive back is a good thng.

It's just given me a bit too much back. lol
