    Mixing stimulants and benzos (or any downer) is usually a bad idea, especially long term. If you need to do it once in a while, you should be okay.

    Example: Lets say you take xanax at night, the next day, it's still in your system but you can't feel it. You would likely need more adderall to feel like you normally would, and this of patterning can lead to taking more than you should and increased heart rate without actually noticing any danger.

    Also, if you take more than just .5mg xanax, you could end up forgetting not to take more, end up eating several, and not notice the negative effects from that until it's too late, because you are so wound up from adderall, and when that wears off, you could go into the xanax xombie state.

    Good luck, just be careful. If there is anything else you need to know i'm sure someone else will post too

    Yep, mixing stimulants and downers is generally a bad idea. Yet I have taken Xanax as a sleep aid after partying on cocaine more times than I can count and nothing bad happened to me. I still wouldn't advice anyone to do it though, I can fuck myself up, but I won't tell somebody else to do it.

    I have been prescribed xanax and adderal for years, by the same doctor, for the very reason of the OP. I know people think it's dangerous, and maybe it is for certain people, but in my world, one can't exist without other. 60mg of adderal and up to 4mg of xanax. I usually combat the adderal with 1mg at the end of the day, and .5 along side each 10mg adderal consumed.

    I wanted to share this because this because this, "it's dangerous" talk just isn't the case for me. Is it healthy? Probably not any healthier than taking the medications by themselves. We aren't talking cocaine and heroin here.. I think you will find a lot of people on ADHD medications have benzo's prescribed as well. In fact a few friends of mine are in the same boat, all with different doctors.

    Im not advocating for you to do so, just sharing my experience of some 1000+ days or so of the same combinations with no known health issues.

    Swim had seen many people perscribed both of these two drugs with good and some even bad affect. It really depends on the person and their Biochemistry and what the doctor is willing to do.

    I think it's perfectly fine.. I mean I am alive an he takes adderall, vyvanse in the morning. Then takes 1mg xanax an 1mg klonipin 30 minutes after. This way I honestly have no come down whatsoever, it might be because my tolerance, or just me growing out of it.

    How long has this been you're routine?

    I hate to sound like a broken record, but mixing uppers and depressants puts a lot of stress on the heart. If it has to be done, use a small amount of xanax, valium, etc.
