Adderall and antacids

I understand you cannot mix the 2, but is it ok to take say Nexium or Protonix?? Is it ok, to take Valerian root for the anxiety? I just started taking 5mg Barr. Thank you.

Re: Adderall and antacids

I was prescribed Nexium...if did have a pop up on the computer when the doctor was putting in the perscription about a potential conflict between the two...she said just to take at night time and it will be fine.

I would check with someone about Valarian as it does conflict with a lot of medications.

I found a couple of reports where people have taken Valerian root while taking Adderall, and no one reported any "major issues."
(Disclaimer: I'm not a doctor, and my post should not be interpreted as medical advice. You should consult your doctor or pharmacist about potential interactions. Your mileage may vary from those posted, etc )

Here are some of the relevant quotes:

But helps when I am going out and need coverage. I could never do a full dose that late or I would be sorry the next day for lack of sleep!

It just does what I need it to do - shuts off the racing thoughts! I really didn't think it would work (I'm not a big user of herbal remedies) but it's been a real help. It even helped with my insomnia when I was on Strattera and that was the worst! He also told me it's okay to take it during the day for help with anxiety and/or fidgeting. Might be worth a try. It's only like $4 over the counter at any pharmacy.

There's also another report, but it's from Erowid, and many reports from Erowid are about "recreational" (read: illegal) use. The reporter for this particular case was prescribed Adderall, but also discusses less-than-legal behaviors in the report. One way or another, I'll say this: the 17-year-old male reported that Valerian root didn't cause any "major" side effects.
