Cardiac Rehabilitation

Mixing Medications

05/16/2008

Question:

What could happen to me if I was to take 2 Adderall 40 mg each, 1 Ibuprofen 500 mg, and 2 muscle relaxants 10 mg each?

Answer:

This question is best answered by the physician who knows your medical history as well as the drugs you take.  

Adderall is a brand of amphetamine and dextramphetamine.  This drug is compatible with ibuprofen and most muscle relaxant drugs.  The drug doses may or may not be appropriate for you depending on your age and weight and medical conditions.

Please discuss your concerns with your physician or the pharmacist who dispenses your drugs.
