I recently wrote an article about interactions between antidepressants and nootropics. Another area of crossover (where a person might want to take two different things for the same reason) is people with ADHD. People with attention-deficit symptoms may be prescribed a stimulant like Adderall and also be interested in nootropics.
According to Psychology Today, millions of people are turning to nootropics to help with attention and other focus problems. If you’re also taking Adderall, you need to consult a physician before taking any other nootropic, supplement, or other medication.
I was able to locate only one contraindication with a common nootropic ingredient. (“Contraindicate” is a fancy word for, “stay away from these two things together.)
On a website used as a resource for some medical professionals, they cite Ginkgo as a major risk for people taking Adderall and similar stimulants. Taking Ginkgo at the same time as these drugs could increase the risk of seizures.
While I couldn’t find any other contraindicated nootropic ingredients, it’s important to remember that Adderall is in the amphetamine family; if you’re interested in any supplements while taking a stimulant that powerful, you need to consult your doctor.
