Resolution criteria is whether I intend to keep doing it regularly (e.g. once per week or two) if I want to. (So if I'm unsure whether it is fine, but concerned enough to stop doing it, then it will resolve 'no'. If I think it's not riskless, but worth it, I'll resolve 'yes'. If I intend to do it but with a markedly higher bar, I'll resolve 'no'. If I don't intend to do it because I find better drugs, but would do it otherwise, I'll resolve 'yes'. [ETA: if I decide either should not be done that much even on its own, I'll resolve 'no'])
Note: this is a question about what is fine for me, not for other people. I'm much less concerned about addiction for me than others, from experience.
This is a 'change my mind' market. I'll hopefully read comments, and maybe change my mind, so you can make money by having a good answer to what I should think and convincing me.
I won't bet.
Relevant evidence I'm aware of:
This is apparently a kind of 'speedball' and there is a wikipedia page on speedball which lists notable deaths, though probably from worse speedballs (e.g. heroin and cocaine)
Most advice on the internet seems to strongly discourage mixing them, though mostly give reasons that sound wrong, e.g. 'easier to overdose' which I'd think is pretty avoidable through taking a specific ok dosage rather than just taking more and more until you feel good. And 'might cancel out the effects' - that's for me to judge, not a health risk. Only possibly good argument I've seen is that it might be bad for your heart, but no idea if this is true—it sounded perhaps made up.
Drugs.com lists no interactions
My psychiatrist said it was fine, but also said a different time that death is not that bad, so may not be aligned with my interests, and may be eccentric.
Reasons I might mix them:
I take adderall to be productive, and take xanax sometimes if I'm anxious or otherwise mentally unhealthy or have a migraine. Sometimes their use cases overlap.
I take both to be productive, if my productivity seems hindered by mental health issues. Some might argue that this is true 95% of the time but I don't do it nearly that often.
I would recommend Adderall + SSRIs (e.g. Sertraline, Fluoxetine) over Adderall + Xanax if you want more consistent day-to-day functioning. Not to mention it avoids the risk of benzo addiction.
Idk if you already know/experimented around before, or how easy it would be to.
But for some people the levo component of adderall hightens anxiety (has pns/sns rather than somewhat purer cns activity of dexo isomer). Or so i'm told. Thought I'd mention incase it's helpful.
