    Can you take Adderall XR and Bactrim DS? Also, can you take it all with 800mg ibuprofen?

    Thank you for your question, and welcome to ADHDCentral.com.


    I am not a medical professional and would not be able to give you medical advice. You should speak directly to your doctor or pharmacist about possible interactions with the different medications you are taking.


    That said, Bactrim is not on the list of medications that commonly cause interactions with Adderall. However, because everyone reacts differently to medication, that does not mean you will not have any interactions. Are you currently experiencing side effects or interactions, or are you asking as a precaution? 


    If your doctor is aware of all the medications you are taking, he is probably confident that you should be able to tolerate these medications together. You might want to keep a log comparing your ADHD symptoms both before and after taking these medications together. That way, if you notice any changes, you can talk with your doctor.
