Hello! I took Lexipro with Adderall for a little less than a year. I did notice my adderall tolerance go up when I started taking lexipro, but it’s hard to say if that was the cause of it. I do feel like it helped me a lot at first in the first few months, but then it kinda tapered off.

As with taking an antidepressant with a stimulant, I have been told that they actually can work together to help adhd and depression. This stuff is super complex and individualistic though, so definitely stay in touch with your doctor.

Everyone is different. And I definitely would advise keeping in contact with your doctor through the process and take note of any positive or negative changes that happen.

Best of luck!
