Zoloft and Dextroamphetamine Tablets

I notice the Zoloft I take at 125 mg seems to limit the effectiveness of my Dextroamphetamine tablet 10-40 mg I take, and vice-versa also seems true. Is this a drug interaction between Zoloft and Dextroamphetamine tablets (Dexedrine generic tablets)? Do I need to be concerned about using the two medicines together? Please, let me know. I have been concerned about this for many months now. Am I at a higher risk for serotonin syndrome and stomach bleeding from the use of these two medicines concurrently?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. You can take both these medications together and these both help with ADHD. Zoloft as non pharmacological measure.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
