Yes, if prescribed. Adderall and Concerta are both central nervous system stimulants and when taken together increase the risk of adverse effects including cardiac events (heart attack, tachycardia) and high blood pressure. If your doctor has prescribed these two drugs, he or she has decided that the potential benefit is higher than the risk. Do not recreationally mix these two drugs.
