Does anyone take paxil and adderall together

I take 30mgs of adderall ir 2-3 times of day and then take 20 mgs of paxil in the night. It seems to work well for me, but im wondering if the paxil is causing me to have to take more adderall. Either way adderall has so far been the best thing to happen to me in a long time . Comparing ritalin to adderall is like comparing a dodge neon to a lexus.

Re: Does anyone take paxil and adderall together

There can be problems with Paxil and other SSRIs along with amphetamines. SSRIs like Paxil, Prozac, and Zoloft can and do compete with the 2D6 metabolic pathway .... this means you can get a buildup of amphetamine in the body and inconsistent metabolized amphetamine levels to the brain which may cause you to need higher doses or lower doses depending on side effects.

Newer SSRIs like Lexapro don't interfere with the metabolic pathway of amphetamines.

Might want to talk to your doctor if you have any problems or concerns.
