Post adderall/epilepsy

add is not my son's only medical challenge. He was 12 yrs when he started having seizures. He is 19 now and wants so badly to graduate from high school and has only one more final to pass. He has just started taking adderall. Ritalin would interfer with his seizure medication. The doctor feels that adderall would not. Please let us know your experience. Thanks Maggie

Hi, our now 13 year old son has been on Depakote for 9 years for seizure control, along with Ritalin, and Concerta ( Currently ) No problem with drug interaction. What type of anti-convulsant med and doseage is your son currently taking ?

Re: adderall/epilepsy

oddly enough I am currently taking 1000mg of depakote for bipolar disorder and also take adderall xr and I have been fine. Many anticonvulsants are used to treat bipolar as a mood stabilizer since it prevents the neurons in our brain from firing too fast. good luck.
