Hello. I’m a 24 y/o F who recently was just put on Adderall XR 20 mg for ADHD and Prozac 20 mg for major depressive disorder. This past week has been HELL for me. In the morning I get a kick from the Adderall for about 4 hours and then I crash and turn into a complete zombie. I have no motivation to do anything, I just lay on the couch which is not like me. Also the thought of food in unappetizing. My mom recently passed unexpectedly giving me severe panic attacks so when needed I take .5 tab of lorazepam. Has anybody had these problems with these medications? A new symptom of hallucinating started today when I thought my husband was standing in my closet. I also can’t sleep at night even though I am unbearably tired. Somebody please give some of their experiences, I feel like I’m going insane.
Prescribed 20 mg Adderall XR and 20 mg Prozac. I feel like I’m going crazy?

My opinion is not to take these together. Adderall XR can help ADHD and depression to a large extent. Since you just started taking it, it's better to take it after food as some patients experience loss of appetite if they take it prior to the meal. This side effect should fade within a short period of time. Taking Adderall alone might make you feel better. However, do take it in the early morning to avoid insomnia at night.
