adderall...mixing with sleep meds?

  1. 0 Hey everyone, so i have a patient who is on adderall, and has been for 4 years, he is 30 y.o. Im wondering if anyone can tell me if its ok to be mixing adderall and sleep medications, is it more of an overkill to the liver?? or is it ok? also this patient has also just recently been noticing a rise in his BP, do you think this has anything to do with the meds?

    Thanks everyone!

    Its a very dangerous combo. First of all one increasing everything, the other decreases, and its not like they will just cancel each other out. It is known fatal mixture of stimulants and depressants for cardiac troubles.

    Given your concern for this pt, I think you already know that the combination is really not good. That's all I'm going to say because I can't discuss medical advice, sorry.
