I am a 27 year old male. I was prescribe fluoxetine 20mg for IED Intermmittent Explosive Disorder. I also have ADHD and was prescribed D-Amphetamine salt com xr 10mg generic for adderall. Ive been taking adderal for two years on and off. The adderall calmed me down but i would still blow up sometimes. I just started the fluoxetine three days ago and i cant feel the adderall at all. I also have not had more than 6 hours of sleep or had a full meal since i started. Ive tryied to have sex and suddenly lost my erection. Tried again the next night and nothing at all. I am calm but i dont have modivation to do anything or go anywhere. Ill start to do something then stop and go sit down. I dont feel much emotion at all. Is this normal just starting on fluoxetine and does it cancel out the adderall?
I take fluoxetine for IED Intermmittent Explosive Disorder and Adderall for ADHD need advice!?

I honestly do not think that Prozac cancelling out Adderall's therapeutic effects is a frequent occurrence... someone very close to me took Prozac with Adderall (IR version) for several years and did not seem to experience any interference.
Having said that, have you been on any other SSRIs for your IED? Prozac (Fluoxetine) is one of the more stimulating SSRIs, as opposed to say, Paxil, which is more sedating.
In my opinion, you are experiencing quite a lot of unpleasant side effects on the Fluoxetine in general.
I suggest calling your doctor's office asap and request a call back from him/her about these negative side effects.
Your doc may try a different SSRI, which just might be your best bet!
