Best Answer

I have been on this combination for a year now (10 mg Lexapro, which I just upped to 20 mg) and 36 mg of Concerta. I can't see any large side effects to taking both together, except perhaps excess sweating. Take Concerta in the morning only, especially if you have trouble falling asleep at night.

Can you use Concerta with LSD?

I wouldn't advise it at all. MDMA is a stimulant and in combination with the concerta will likely significantly increase blood pressure, heart rate, and could result in a heart attack. Also, MDMA effects the release/reuptake of serotonin, as does Lexapro (which is an SSRI). It is possible that this combination could lead to Serotonin Syndrome or at least a longer hangover after taking the MDMA.
