    swim is prescribed 30 mg adderall xr daily in the morning, but swim really wants to try some benzos especially xanax. swim has a blue football shaped one lined up for tomorrow which is apparently 1 mg due to swim's research. Swims question is what should be the time swim takes the two. should swim take them at all. what altercations should be done? nose game (snorting) is not an option at all for swim. and swim would prefer not to crush up the adderall xr to make it IR. but whatever you guys have to say will be appreciated. some extra info: 150 pound male, 6 foot 1. been on daily scripted adderall for about 2 months, never taken a benzo before. taken hydrocodone and other pain killers before. smoke a lot of weed. any info or advice is much appreciated..

    SWIY used to take adderall and xanax a lot on the weekends. SWIY would take adderall to keep SWIY up at night while SWIY was on xanax. Usually 20-30 mg of adderall and 4-6 mg of xanax. SWIY never had any problems. I wouldn't think it to be very heart healthy, but SWIY has mixed much worse things.

    Hope this was helpful

    4-6mg in one night is not a good suggestion for someone who has never take a benzo before. That's blackout territory.

    Back when SWIM was into benzos and stuff, one bar (2mg) each was usually enough SWIM and his buddies, without alcohol.

    Start low, work your way up.
    SWIM never did... but it's still good advice.

    To clarify- is SWIY looking to take both at/around the same time for a strong combination-type experience, or is SWIY merely wondering if it is safe/pleasurable to take Xanax while on a daily dose of Adderall?
    Either way I would tell him to first experiment with Xanax alone, i.e. take his Adderall as usual in the morning but plan on enjoying the Xanax later that day or night. If that floats SWIY boat and/or you want to experiment with both at the same time, then progress with either taking both in the morning or even holding off on the morning Adderall dose and taking it and the Xanax later in the day together. This is strictly advice on how SWIM would go about it from a scientific standpoint- SWIM has little experience with either, and none in combining the two.

    SWIM has done both together, insufflating in which SWIM joking called a "speedball". They seem to mainly cancel each other out. SWIM got a somewhat decent body buzz, but was not stimulated or sedated. SWIM would suggest taking SWIY's normal dose of Adderall in the morning, and then the Xanax later on in the day so it's felt. SWIM would HIGHLY recommend not pushing past 2mg on the Xanax without a tolerance!

    SWIM has taken this combination many, many times and finds it quite nice. As long as SWIY keeps the doses low, it should be ok. Start low and work up, anyway.

    Not good to do this regularly -- as someone else said, it is kind of a "speedball" in its own way, and surely not good for the heart.

    SWIM doesn't find that the 2 cancel each other out as it does for "MyNameisMJ"'s friend. For SWIM, there is a nice synergy. The xanax takes the harsh edge off the adderall, and the adderall keeps one from falling asleep from the xanax. The 2 together almost feel like an opiate, but not quite.

    Confused. Call it a speedball because it is an upper and a downer?

    Xanax + Addy would be less harsh on the heart than Addy alone. In case of amphetamine overdose, benzos are frequently administered to calm the person down.

    Further, SWIM has used this combination before (not in a recreational, but therapeutic setting) and enjoyed it. Adderall/Vyvanse stresses SWIM out, especially when coming down from 70mg vyvanse GR!!, the benzos practically reduce this to nil, COMFORTABLE would be the word.

    ISWIMHO, addy + benzo is much preferred over say, addy + opiate, opiates are nice, but if your opiate wears off before you can get to sleep and your still crashin from addy, have fun with that shit. Whereas benzo usually lasts long enough to put SWIM out. Even xanax which is "relatively" short acting can be taken in the AM along with vyvanse and keep SWIM comfortable all day and night, just for whatever reason.

    TrustedChems added 6 Minutes and 2 Seconds later...

    If SWIY is looking to get trashed, addy + xanax does not sound fun or responsible for that, if SWIY is looking to feel extremely good throughout the day and remain functional, use whatever dose of addy SWIY feels is necessary (SWIM would use vyvanse 70 mg and maybe a 20mg addy ir in the am before v kicks in) and when SWIM began feelin a little bit edgy or jaw clenchy, take approximately .5mg xanax, let it dissolve under tongue and feel it immediately almost, if SWIY is still feeling on edge, increase another .5. For someone with no tolerance 1 mg is enough to calm a person down a little bit (maybe more than enough?). For SWIM, who takes school quite serious and can not afford to be forgetful so much, especially during class, xanax is only taken until SWIM is comfortable and feeling well, no need to push further or SWIY may end up saying/doing dumb things because 1)xanax and 2) energy/motivation from addy....but might not remember it...not SWIMs cup of tea..

    happy hunting

    SWIM has been experimenting with different combinations of Adderall and Xanax. SWIM have found that a 10mg/.5mg ratio to be his favorite. He says that together, they make one more relaxed, motivated, emotional, and when spending time with one that you love helps you feel the connection more deeply. SWIM has found that Xanax makes the adderall experience much more controllable and with a increased desire to do simple fun things like playing catch with your dog, when it isn't something you would normally do, and having a blast at it. SWIM says music seems much better while driving, and doing productive things really makes you feel like you've helped.

    SWIM also mentioned that Xanax virtually eliminates the heart palpitations (hearing your heartbeat) that many people get from even non-recreational doses of amph's.

    SWIM's biggest problem, however, is that Xanax only lasts around 3 hours while Adderall XR lasts around 8, so he's interested in crushing up a much longer lasting benzo and putting it the the XR capsule with the beads, so the euphoric, carefree feeling will last longer without redosing.

    Alternatively, one could just crush up the Adderall beads and snort them while taking the Xanax sublingually. However, it seems more cost effective and requires less preparation to just obtain a longer lasting benzo and take them orally.

    Ideally, SWIM would like to have a mixture of Xanax with Adderall IR tablets, and a mixture of a longer lasting benzo with his Adderall XR capsules, so that way he could tailor his dose to what the situation called for.

    No No.....No... So Bella was dreaming one night and floating stars describing the sensations of adderall 30mg and xanax 1mg together to be enjoyable..she had tolerance....Then magically Bella had them metabolizing in her stomach.....

    The combination canceled out the adderall IR for 2 days after consumption....

    Bella being ADD on top of the faulty combination = a really bad nightmare...fatigue..headaches...and no motivation/ mild concentration, absolutely no euphoria........

    Following the consumption of xanax during peak concentration hours of adderall IR some how dramatically decreased her effectiveness of adderall.....also effected the next day adderall's effectiveness was still dramatically decreased......you know in her dream.....The dream was a terrible nightmare and she learned to never try it outside of her dream....
