Yes. Using a stimulant--Adderall, Ritalin (methylphenidate), Concerta (extended release methylphenidate, and others--along with the atypical antipsychotics (such as Risperdal, Seroquel, Zyprexa, Ability) is often done, usually if aggression is present with the ADHD or if mood symptoms, such as bipolar symptoms are present. There can be side effects associated with this combination; this usually occurs when one or the other is removed or started. (in the realm of motor movements--known as dyskinesias). Folks on a stable combination don't usually have this problem. This problem particular problem goes away once doses are adjusted. Most folks don't experience this particular side effect.

Can you take Adderall instead of risperdal?

Answer: I don't know your current situation, and I'm no doctor, but I can tell you one thing, if you are prescribed Risperdal, one of the worst things you can take is Adderall. Risperdal is used as one of the many anti-psychotics sometimes prescribed to patients who are addicted to amphetamies such as Adderall. Adderall taken over a long period of time or that is abused can cause severe addiction. Withdrawal symptoms include that of someone with paranoid schizophrenia. So if you are prescribed the Risperdal for schizophrenia or some kind of other mental-illness including anxiety disorders, please do not take Adderall. If you were previously on Adderall and then you were prescribed Risperdal to deal with the withdrawal symptoms then you shouldn't start taking the Adderall again. That is a very bad idea, it will only prolong your addiction, and cause your withdrawal symptoms to be much worse. However, this is really a decision you should make with the guidance of your doctor. hope this helps, Megan.**********
