When you are taking any kind of drug combination, please do not rely on hear-say. Check with your doctor or pharmacist. Mixing drugs that are not compatible is very dangerous.

You should not mix adderall with vicodin, meaning do not take them at the same time. I have ADD and a herniated disc so my Dr. did give me rx for both, but told me to take 1 10mg at 8 am and another at noon of the adderall to control the ADD. She said it would be ok to take no more than 2, 5 mg tabs of vicodin at bedtime for my back. It did help with insomnia from the adderall and my back pain. Like all rx's. Take them EXACTLY as Dr. ordered. If you are prone to abuse you run the risk of damaging your kidneys. Also drink at least 8 glasses of water a day, and avoid caffeine. Taking both at the same time is equivelent to "speedballing" which can cause serious damage to your heart. If you take them at the same time they counteract each other and throws your brain out of wack. As always everyone is different and you should consult your Dr. and go to the Dr. to have your vitals checked regularly.
