i started taking my lexapro today,but i honestly have been second guessing it alot , my doctor wants to prescribe adderall to me in january but i am afraid to take both of them together since they can't be mixed , due to the serotonin syndrome that may occur, but i have also heard adderall can help with many of the symptoms i have since i do have adhd , but i heard that it can help with depression as well, which i also have, but i really want to take adderall instead of lexapro mixed in with adderall, i even dropped out of school due to my adhd and i had to get home schooled, but i was just wondering if any one else had gone through either taking lexapro mixed with adderall or adderall to treat depression

thank you <3

I take adderall with pristiq and there is no problem, there isn't any seratonin in adderall. So don't be afraid of seratonin syndrome. I like adderall very much. It gives me the energy that I lack due to fibromyalgia.

I hope that you have a wonderful holiday. Keep posting.

@getting by im leaning in more towards taking the adderall instead of the lexapro since im really sensitive to anti depressants and it just does major damage to my body since im really petite, and i have more adhd symptoms but i also have depression mixed in my whole situation, but ill definitely let my doctor know. thank you for replying :) happy holidays :)

ill definitely keep you guys updated on my journey to feeling better :)
