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

     

    Celexa is not on the list of medications with possible interactions with Vyvanse. Celexa is a SSRI type of antidepressant. The information for Vyvanse indicates that tricyclic antidepressants may cause interations but does not list SSRIs.

     

    This being said, it is important to note that people may react differently to medications and while it has not been found to be harmful to take both medications, some people may experience adverse reactions. Most people, however, are able to take medications without experiencing adverse reactions.

     

    It is important to discuss your concerns with your doctor, as you have. You can also discuss possible interactions with your pharmacist.

    Both physicians may be right depending on your child's specific circumstances. While it is not uncommon to prescribe an ADD medication (Adderall) and Celexa (for mood) it is best to have a thorough discussion with each physician. You might discuss with each physician why one MD said yes, and the other MD said no. As a psychotherapist, I think it is always a risky proposition to ask questions regarding medication to the general public unless they are specifically trained with these medications. Good luck.
