Remember this: Prozac and Paxil both significantly block the pathway for the metabolism of Adderall IR and all the amphetamine products for ADHD treatment including Vyvanse, Dexedrine, and Adderall XR. If you take either of these two antidepressants together with an amphetamine, watch out. You can significantly become overdosed on the amphetamine through drug interactions. Often the interaction can unpredictably occur several months later. The patient becomes toxic to the amphetamine, angry, irrational, can't sleep, can't eat, or can become dangerously destructive. The Adderall/Vyvanse/amphetamine often gets blamed. The Prozac and the Paxil are the problems.
This specific pathway interaction is relevant also for Concerta and MPH [methylphenidate] products blocking 2D6 when taken with AMP [amphetamine] products.
See "Drug Interaction Principles for Medical Practice," Wynn, Cozza, Armstrong, et al. for details. Global Link Here: http://geni.us/stimulants
I've seen these 2D6 reactions repeatedly in my office since first understanding these interactions in 1996 - one of the reasons I wrote: "New ADHD Medication Rules - Brain Science and Common Sense" - available in paper, eBook and Audible at this Global Link: http://geni.us/adhd
To see the connection between brain science and common sense: evidence matters.
*Like* this and pass it on to your colleagues and friends - it's an important interaction often overlooked, and we need to spread the watchword for this challenging, potentially dangerous interaction.
