will this make the pain meds less effective?
Hi dm, Do you mean Adderall? If you do, this medication is usually used for ADD and ADHD. My sister is on it and she also takes pain medication for nerve damage. Since, according to Drugs.com, this medication also works on the nervous system I can understand your concern... As I said, my sister takes this medication and is also on Percocets 10/325. She said it actually seems to make her pain medication work better... but as you know, we are all different, and it could affect you differently. I would try it if it is the same doctor that is prescribing your pain medications. If not, I would talk to my pain management doctor first. Good Luck
2 years ago I was taking 30 mg of adderall and 30mg of percocet everyday. For ME it did seem the make the pain medication work better. Adderall gave me the worst headache ever!!! I mean the worst one I have ever had and I have had some bad ones. So the pain medication would help the headaches. good luck to ya.
Adderall is an amphetamine and will not make you pain medications less effective. Given your condition I suspect your dr is prescribing this to help motivate you and help you concentrate and stay focused.
I take ritalin for this purpose and I took it along with my narcotics when I was on them. It did not affect how they worked. Actually it seemed to enhance the affect because the ritalin helped me feel better because of it's own actions. Ritalin is not an amphetamine. If the adderall seems like a little too much you might want to ask your dr about switching.
You should notice quite a difference on the adderall. I believe you will be pleasantly surprised. Let me know. God Bless and Good Luck. Sable
Yeah I have to agree with the above. I've only noticed that it seems to make the vicodin I take work better. After having all the problems I have had with my teeth and the pain relievers they gave me vicodin and others didn't seem to work at all. So I would end up mixing them with alcohol to pass out. Not a good idea don't try it. But since I've started the adderall I've felt much less pain and haven't had the sluggishness I had from the pain pills before. I think it's a great combo.
