Hi there,

I understand your concern.

The Seroquel will block some of the dopamine affects Dexedrine so you won't get the full effect of dopamine.

However, Seroquel also has an additional serotonin effect which will help you in addition to the norepinephrine effects of Dexedrine.

There is currently no known side effects with taking both of them.

A review online shows that many people take both of them and do very well.

I would recommend takDexedrinerine in the morning and early afternoon, and taking Seroquel at night before bed.

Seroquel will help you get sleep.

Let me know if you have additional questions.

I am glad to help and answer all questions.

Another alternative would be to take Adderall XL in the morning and take the Seroquel at night to prevent any interaction
