Celexa 40 mg and Adderall 30 mg BID

I am a 4'10" 27 year old female weighing 102 lbs. I am prescribed celexa 40 mg and adderall 30 mg BID (2x a day) by the same doctor. Lately I can't sleep at night my blood pressure is high 130/90. My heart rate seems really fast. I've been twitching a lot, have hot and cold flashes, abdominal cramping, a lump on the back of my neck (right side), body is sore, frequent urge to urinate but hardly pee and my skin is warm to the touch. What's wrong with me?

A full checkup is in order, but Adderall can BOTH increase insomnia and increase blood pressure.

PLEASE CALL YOUR DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY ABOUT YOUR SYMPTOMS! IF IT IS AFTER HOURS THEY WILL PAGE YOUR DOCTOR OR WHOEVER IS ON CALL.  

THERE IS A SERIOUS INTERACTION SOMETIMES CAUSED WHEN TAKING ADDERRALL AND CELEXA! CELEXA POTENTIATES THE AFFECTS OF ADDERRALL - AN AMPHETIMINE! CAUSING MANY OF THE SYMPTOMS YOU ARE HAVING...

TOU MUST COMMUNICATE THIS TO YOUR DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY.

I AM A NURSE, BUT I KNOW OF THIS.

SOME DRUGS YOU CANT JUST STOP IMMEDIATELY, LIKE SOME ANTIDEPRESSANTS (SAVELLA) AND SOME OTHERS, IT MAY CAUSE ADVERSE REACTIONS, YOU MUST WEAN YOURSELF OFF. BUT ONLY WITH A DOCTORS ADVISE! ASK YOUR DOCTOR WHAT TO DO. ONLY A DOCTOR CAN DIAGNOSE YOU. YOU ALSO HAVE THE OPTION OF GOING TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM IF YOU FEEL UNSTABLE.

HERE IS A LINK TO INFO ABOUT THE DRUG INTERACTION. YOU CAN ALSO CALL YOUR LOCAL PHARMACIST AT THE DRUG STORE TO TALK ABOUT THE INTERACTION BETWEEN THE TWO DRUGS.
