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.

No; Adderall XR and Concerta are however both extended-release central nervous system stimulants used to treat ADHD and narcolepsy. Adderall contains amphetamine, while Concerta contains methylphenidate.

No. However, taking both Adderall and Concerta at the same time can be extremely dangerous. Adderall and Concerta are both brand names for stimulants used to treat ADHD/ADD and narcolepsy. Consult with your doctor.

Answer: Concerta and Adderall aren't very much different at all, except Adderall is more effective and Concerta has less side effects. They both are dopamine reuptake inhibitors. Adderal just seems to be more potent. Concerta is less addictive as well. hope this helps, Megan.******
