Can I Take Both Accutane and Adderall ?

There is no cross-reaction between Accutane and Adderall

One of the potential side effects of Accutane are mood alterations.  If a patient has those, I do require a clearance by a psychiatrist that the patient is able to take Accutane.

Adderall is an ADD or ADHD medication.  If you do not have mood alterations, there should not be a problem with taking both medications.  Do discuss the fact that you are taking Adderall with your dermatologist.
