Hi there ~

Concerta is a medication for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and has to be used the way it is prescribed by the doctor. It should not be combined with any other medication like amphetamine. I would think that there would be problems with the combination since they are both stimulants. I think it would help if you could stop using the amphetamine, don't know where you got it but it will definitely not help to keep taking both the medications at the same time. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day!

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Either of the them - individually could cause this
It could be - at times - dangerous
You need psychiatric assessment and assistance...
A look at your heart may also be necessary to rule out any lesion - even if the fast rate can be explained by these...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
