Common Questions and Answers about Lexapro and adderall

lexapro

Avatar n tn Then the following day is marked by apathy and irritability. Symptoms improve after one day of no Adderall (and a break helps prevent tolerance). Taking Adderall also increases my heart rate, and I feel physically more nervous, despite anxious thoughts not being present. I would like to remain on Adderall, as the treatment for my ADHD has given me a substantial boost in confidence and learning, which has been invaluable and overshadows its negatives.
Avatar m tn I am a recovering addict and was on adderall for years with lexpro and ofcourse abused the adderall. I feel like lexapro has changed my outlook on life better than when i was on wellbutren and lithium so I am very greatful for that. I just need to get my ADHD somewhat tamed as it is causing problems at my work place. I feel like a basket case writing all my problems just really need to get answers... Thank you for your time..
Avatar m tn I am suffering so bad with concentration and focus its affecting my work BAD...

Avatar m tn I am on Adderall XR, Wellbutrin XL 300mg, Neurontin 600-1200mg, Vicodin 5-10mg, Lexapro 10mg, and Prozac 10mg.I initially started on the prozac a month or so after being on the Lexapro 10mg, because I had increased the dosage by 10mg which was counteracting my Adderall which I take for ADD. With that being said, my question is whether anyone has increased Lexapro dosage while they are getting off of Prozac or permanently seeing as the Prozac does help.
Avatar n tn Can lexapro help with getting off of adderall?
Avatar m tn Recently I was officially diagnosed with ADHD (possibly caused by a post concussive personality disorder -- I had head injuries as a kid) and OCD/GAD. My neuro decided to put me on Adderall and Zoloft. The Adderall is working pretty well (I guess - it might need to be a bit stronger), but the Zoloft... not so much. I got a lot of side effects, most notably dyspepsia (indigestion/reflux/heartburn), jitteryness (is that a real word?) and sexual side effects. The doc then switched me to Lexapro.
896568 tn?1241642874 I am 23 years old and i have been taking adderall 30 mg xr once a day for years. First off, Adderall is the absolute worst drug you can take if you have anxiety. I myself have severe anxiety and OCD, and Adderall definitely makes my symptoms worse. I am surprised your doctors haven't tried to take you off of some of your medications.
Avatar f tn I was taking a benzodiazepine an SSRI and adderall and i noticed the SSRI changed my mood as well and made me on edge. I am currently taking Valium for my anxiety and depression and adderall for my ADD. Its been about 2 years now since i stopped taking lexapro and i have been much better since. I would talk to your doctor about other forms of treatment and explain what your actual side effects are.
351317 tn?1204751871 I have ADD and moderate/major depression and was wondering if there are others out there with these problems and if so what medications are you taking that help. Ritalin makes me nuts but adderall worked for me better with a little less side effects. Still stimulants makes my already high anxiety worse but still I do think I need them. Is there some kind of balance with other meds that would allow me to take stimulants without feeling so anxious?
Avatar n tn Do you know if there is an issue with taking Lexapro and Adderall? I started taking Adderall because I was unable to concentrate at my work so I dont want to stop taking it.
Avatar f tn I have tried klonopin, ativan, ambien cr, tonight for instance i took 1 ambien 4 1/2 mg of ativan and 1 1/2 mg of klonopin and i am wide awake. Not quit sure the difference between adderall and benzo's. I used to be on ridilin and now am on dexedrin which are both uppers but have sleep side affects that are supposed to make you sleepy . I am at my whits end. sorry not really much of an advice more than a comment and trying to learn what other people are trying.
Avatar m tn Then, about 2 ½ years ago I had a near-psychotic meltdown, mostly about the devil and evil spirits, and was diagnosed with OCD and prescribed Anafranil and Zyprexa, which helped with the irrational thinking and obsessive thoughts a little. Between now and then, I have been diagnosed with OCD, Social anxiety disorder, GAD, major depressive disorder, ADHD, and most recently, aspergers/high functioning autism.
Avatar f tn I AM TRYING TO GET OFF OF LEXAPRO. I HAVE BEEN ON IT FOR YEARS. I TAKE AMBIEN, LEXAPRO AND ADDERALL, I'M TIRED OF BECOMING DEPENDANT ON THESE MEDICATIONS. I WOULD LIKE TO TRY A MORE NATURAL APPROACH TO MEDS. I ALSO HAD THE FLU 1 1/2 WEEKS AGO, SINCE THEN I HAVENT TAKEN ANY MEDS AND FELLING PRETTY GOOD. I DO GET THE WEIRD FEELINGS AND THE SHOCK LIKE WAVES GOING THROUGH MY BODY. I KNOW THIS HAS TO BE SOME TYPE OF REACTION TO GETTING OFF.
Avatar m tn Because of this my psychiatrist put me on new meds. I am now on Lexapro, Latuda, Lorazepam, and Adderall XR. I am able to function, but not live. I work from my couch, very rarely leave the home, and feel like a complete zombie. I have urges to take more Adderall throughout the day as I feel that is the only medicine that helps me actually "live". My new doctor changed my antidepressant from Lexapro to Pristiq about a month ago to solve this problem.
Dog Hi! My son takes the generic of both Adderall XR and Lexapro - is it ok for us to use lavender essential oils in his room to promote relaxed and peaceful sleep? He has trouble staying asleep, and frequently has nightmares, and we were told Lavender could help. Thanks!
571966 tn?1217110203 Have you spoken to the doc about a mood stabelizer? That's what I'm on and the Adderral. It did help calm things down a lot and I had the same luck on the other meds you mentioned as you did. Effexor was the worst! Wellbutrin didn't do anything and Lexapro didn't work either. I take Abilify now and that helps quite a bit.
Avatar n tn Due to your multiple health problems and medications, your concerns and questions must be directed to your doctors. Dr.
Avatar n tn Im not anhedonia, but I have been diagnosed clinically depressed bipolar. I take lexapro and adderall. Adderall is a very slippery slope but it works. Has anyone every talked about adderall as a possibility with an antidepressant? Im not sure if you know what it is but its basically speed in monitored dosages. I mean it is an amphetamine.... It is a class c drug and you have to get a prescription every month from your doctor.
393236 tn?1227799094 #1. I am on Lexapro 40mg, Adderall 30mg, Tramadol HCL 50mg and Migranol (I haven't used it for awhile), Is there a threat of serotonin toxicity with this combination, and if so, what is the probablility that I would get it? (my Neurologist isn't worried, but I always am) #2. What is the best pain medication that would work with these conditions? (preferably, the least addicting) #3. Is Chiari malformation something to be concerned about? (Neuro.
Avatar f tn t helping as much as it used to, I saw a psychiatrist who advised that I continue the Effexor (same dosage) and add Lexapro 1xday 10mg. He also prescribed Ambien for insomnia and Ativan for panic attacks. I feel better as far as anxiety goes but symptoms of depression are very much still there. I have no energy at all. No motivation. If it were up to me, I would stay in bed all day. Would a stimulant be helpful in my situation?
Avatar f tn I am a 27 year old female. When I was 22, I took the drugs adderall, lexapro and ephedrine/phentermine (diet pills-occasionally). One night, my heart rate shot up and would not come back down, don’t matter what I tried. I went to the emergency room and they said it was the drugs I was taking. When I was 23, I began having syncope episodes and got a pacemaker. Looking back, I believe the syncope episodes were caused by the adderall and lexapro. However, I have had chest pains ever since.
Avatar f tn ve always been a situational depressive person so through a hard time, worst time of my life, my de put me on TWO antidepressants.... Maxes out on Effexor XR and Lexapro. Honestly, I did need it at the time. I was having panic attacks and he gave me Xanax as well. I'm down to only 1/2 the dose I was on on the Effexor, switched psychiatrist, trying to wean off of my Adderall but I have found my Brain THINKS I need it.
