as you know,drugs.com interaction is always available and it's very fast.I check it but says there were none.However,most people using amphetamine don't use benzo or any tranquilizers unless they want to fight insomnia or to calm themselves when become too agitated.Logically,amphs increases heart beat while benzo slower the beat,I guess,so you'll be confusing your heart,and to some degree playing with it which in my opinion is dangerous.Once in a blue moon might be O.K but habitually is really a serious game that you ought to discuss it with doc.I have never heard one being described both meds at the same time.If you get anxious while taking dexe,you would consider lowering your dose mgs.I still don't understand since you take Xanax for your anxiety,why do you need dexamphetamine for?If you get fatigue from taking benzos,you're opt to ask for antidepressants for they are much much safer..What I say here may not be t scientifically true,but it makes sense to me.Alcohol,I just read in the interaction section says sth you may need to know,after you check the interaction between Xanax and dexe,keep pressing down and you'll find it..Goooood luck.ace_rick
My doctors had me doing this for awhile - I was sedated from my pain meds and had a sleep disorder and was prescribed a member of the benzodiazapine family, Klonopin, similar to Xanax, used for sleep in my case. Then they prescribed dextramphetamine (very similar to Dexedrine) in the morning to wake up. Uppers and downers was what these were called back in the 60's I believe. I eventually got off both medications and found ways naturally to sleep and lowered my pain meds to where I'm not falling asleep. It didn't happen overnight, just gradually. You don't specify why you are taking these, so I can only tell you of my situation. I hope this has helped you in some small way. Take care!
I agree with the post above - taking an upper with a depressant is not a good thing for the heart. I suppose if they were taken hours apart from each other it isn't so bad. Heck - out here they took a canned cocktail off the market because it was killing the idiots who were drinking it - it was a concentrated mix of alcohol and caffiene and other OTC stimulants.
And, I am not calling you an idiot. Good luck
