I am taking amphetamine salt medication for ADHD. I have been advised to take levodopa/carbidopa in order to increase dopamine levels and therefore efficacy of the amphetamine salt. I was advised to do this rather than increasing amphetamine dose. Is this safe? I have found mixed answers in my online research
Shew; I ran your two medication through our drug interaction list on Drugs.com and it does not find any but mention you can double check with your doctor or pharmacist. Here is what it says.
((((Interactions between your selected drugs
No results found - however, this does not necessarily mean no interactions exist. Always consult with your doctor or pharmacist.))) okay hope that will give you somewhat of an idea. Chuck1957
