From this study (2 years ago):
I would like to know if there are any adverse effects of taking these drugs together, as I am going to the gym & working with a personal trainer. I have an excess amount of body fat and would like to try to get rid of some of it with the help of this supplement if it is safe.
Wondering on Sep, 7, 2012:
I am a 27 year old female and I have been taking adderall for many years. It's my understanding that this could have future effects on you but I was concerned about mixing it with the raspberry ketones. My weight loss program says its absolutely ok to mix them but I'm reading online how it has caffeine which is not a good mixture with adderall for me. My raspberry ketones are doctor prescribed so all I have is a prescription bottle without any ingredients listed. How is using these combined working for you? How do you feel? And have you found out any effects this could have on you?
