Hello. I am Female, 35.I have been diagnosed ADHD and take 20 mg of Aderal daily. In addition, my doctor prescribed Zoloft for anxiety. I would assume my Doctor wouldn't Rx medications that are not to be used together but, am now wondering if this is contributing to my problem and the tension in my temples/jaw?Minor allergies to pollen/dust/dander... no major coughing or sinus issues, currently. I have noticed my ears itching fairly often in the past few days....

Thanks for the further information.

Adderall and Zoloft have significant drug interaction and can also cause side effects you are experiencing (swelling in temples, ears itching etc). You may ask your doctor to consider reviewing and revising the prescription due to these adverse effects.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
