Default amphetamines with prozac

Has anyone gone through what the effects are?
I have always taken adderall at unusually low doses (.5 mg or less) and recently started taking prozac. While the effects of prozac have more or less been positive, I noticed that it seems to act as a coutnerweight to adderall. When I mixed these medications together, I stay awake more and pay have a shorter attention span.

The other day, I took a much higher dose than usual (40mg) and found very strange effects, which i believe were a interaction. I stopped taking prozac for a few days, but when i began it again, i just felt extremely tired and slow.

In a nutshell, I need to pay attention. I do not plan on giving up adderall. I've also felt symptoms of dperession for the past year or so, and I wouldnt mind taking some thing that doesnt interfer.

Any advice or similar experiences?

I take Paxil(SSRI just like Prozac), Adderall XR and Ritalin IR and I find to have no problems with my attention or motivation at all.

I've taken Prozac in the past but never in conjunction with amphetamines.'

Maybe you need a higher dose of Adderall?

You can try 5-HTP PRN instead of SSRI.
I advice you not to stop SSRIs and start again as you like you are really messing with the brain's adaption.

I take 40mg of Paxil and 90mg of Adderal. I don't have any problems with concentration.

Too late for that.
