    brittani,

    Benadryl can cause tachycardia (heart palpitations) as can Adderall. Taking the two together increases the risk of tachycardia.

    I do not know what oscillococcinum is.

    You say, "for like a week and a half." Do you mean you took the allergy meds and the Adderall together for a week and a half?

    Are you still experiencing any adverse effects?

    If you experienced and continue to experience any heart related problems, call your doctor immediately.

    If adverse effects stopped with the discontinuation of the med combination, simply do not do the mix again. Call your doctor for an appointment and let him/her prescribe meds for ADHD and allergies.

    Bob

    I take Adderall and have allergies. First I would definitely ask your doctor what he/she thinks. As for me, I use Flonase (the nose spray) and it works great!! It doesn't have the "stuff" that causes drowsiness, etc. that Benedryl has. BUT you need a prescription for Flonase.

    hope this helps

    take care
