Adderall XR/Parkinson's Disease

[My Question:]

Will taking Adderall XR 60 mg (30 mg capsules 2x/day) raise my risk of developing Parkinson's disease since Parkinson's is related to dopamine neurons not working right?

I have some family history of Parkinson's, so I am concerned that trying to treat my ADHD with Adderall XR may be too dangerous if I am at risk for getting Parkinson's disease.

[My Medicines]

Adderall XR 30 mg (2x/Day)

Zoloft tablets 75 mg (as 25 mg 3x/Day)

Hydroxyzine Pamoate 50 mg 3x/Day (as needed)

Singulair 10 mg every evening (as needed)

Androgel 40.5 g every morning (2 pump actuations of the metered-dose pump actuator)

Propranolol 40 mg tablets 2x/Day as needed

Lunesta 3 mg at bedtime as needed

Advair 250/50 Diskus (fluticasone propionate and salmetrol) 1-2 times daily as needed
