Is it just for effectiveness or does it cause problems?
This was found on the interactions between the 2 meds that you mention:
Applies to: omeprazole, Adderall (amphetamine/dextroamphetamine)
MONITOR: Coadministration of proton pump inhibitors with extended release forms of amphetamine may affect the release rate of amphetamine from the capsule. The mechanism is reduction of gastric acidity. When omeprazole 40 mg/day was concomitantly administered with a mixed salts amphetamine 20 mg, the median Tmax decreased by 1.25 hours for d-amphetamine and by 2.5 hours for l-amphetamine. The systemic exposure (AUC) and maximum plasma concentration (Cmax) were unchanged.
MANAGEMENT: Patients should be monitored for changes in clinical effects during concomitant use.
However, please do check it with the doc/pharmacist who prescribed the meds, take care.
