Thank you for your question and welcome to Health Central's ADHD Community.


I am not a medical professional and would not be able to give you medical advice.


I checked on the Walgreens Drug Interaction Tool and it indicated "Please contact your Walgreens Pharmacist for information about this interaction."


You should always use the same pharmacy for filling prescriptions and tell your doctors about all medications you are taking, including vitamins, over-the-counter medications and supplements to make sure there are no possible interactions or, if there are, you are aware of any possible side effects or interactions and understand any warning signs.


I would suggest talking with your doctor or pharmacist about these medications so you better understand possible interactions.
