ritalin and adderall are a bit different in terms of actions/effects (dexedrine is also different, slightly, from those two, and desoxyn has itw own different effects). Now and then, 2 different stims will be mixed--adderal+ritalin, dexedrine+adderall, desoxyn+dexedrine, etc.--but I dont think its terribly common. What appears to be more common is mixing Provigil, the anti-narcolepsy med, with conventional stimulants. I cant really advise you about stimulant mixtures; I dont think they're terribly common, and there doesn't seem to be too much research on doing that. I do remember that recently they found that alot of foster kids in Florida were being **heavily** medicated--something like 40% of them were on meds, many on cocktails..some ridiculous number like that. Anyway, when they looked at the RX histories, they found lots of "unproven, potentially unsafe combinations" of those was the use of 2+ stimulants at the same time. I imagine the combo would be best for severe depression, emotional problems complicated by obesity or narcolapsy, or severe, treatment-resistant ADHD.
