Adderall has the potential to increase symptoms of delusions and psychosis, usually when abused. Risperdal acts as a direct antagonist of dopamine receptors which is the site of action for Adderal. It can be prescribed with an anti-psychotic to minimize any danger of side-effects. You and your doctor will decide if the risks outweigh the benefits. It is actually a very commonly prescribed combination of drugs(though I'm not sure for what illness), and is helpful if the person is suffering from negative symptoms of schizophrenia. Although there are some correlations between dopamine receptors and schizophrenia, it is not an absolute and each person may respond differently.
