Its bad to combine the two. You can get problems with high blood pressure and nausea.

Re: adderall with st johns wort???

No, do not combine the two. St.John's Wort is probably an MAOI (I don't know if anyone knows for sure) which can cause serious problems when mixed with amphetamines. MAOI's cause the effects of certain drugs to be much stronger, and when taken with Adderall or other CNS stimulants it can cause dangerous spikes in blood pressure and heart rate.

So like, the worst possible thing to take for your anxiety :/
