Shrooms and Adderall are both considered helpful with maintaining attention span, and regulating focus and energy levels. In this blog post, we’ll discuss what both of these substances do, and how they can interact together. Let’s get started!

Adderall, a stimulant drug typically used for treating Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), has been known to increase focus and potentially enhance cognitive performance.

Magic mushrooms (psychedelics), on the other hand, have been linked to improved creativity as well as reduced stress and anxiety. But can you mix shrooms and Adderall together?


  • Aderall and shrooms are very different types of stimulants ✨
  • Shrooms contain psilocybin, while Adderall contains amphetamine salts ✨
  • A trip on both shrooms and Adderall can be a peaceful flow ✨
  • Microdosing shrooms while on Adderall improves cognitive performance, and helps to stay focused ✨
  • However, in general, taking these two substances together is risky ✨

What Is Adderall and How Does It Work?

What Is Adderall and How Does It Work

Adderall is an ADHD medication. It is a combination of amphetamine salts, which boost the concentration of dopamine and norepinephrine – chemicals that are responsible for regulating attention and behavior. 

The desired effects of Adderall include:

  • increased energy, focus, and concentration; 
  • improved cognitive performance; 
  • improved attention span; 
  • wakefulness;
  • ability to stay on task; 
  • increased motivation, and decreased fatigue.

  • spiritual connection;
  • increased feelings of insight and understanding;
  • feelings of connectedness.

As you can see, these are very similar to the effects of Adderall. No wonder some people would turn to magic mushrooms, as the natural alternative.

A few clinical trials show that psilocybin-assisted therapy can be beneficial in treating ADHD, promoting better focus and concentration. Although these results are promising, further research needs to be conducted.

Right now, all we know is how these substances affect those with ADHD at the time being. We don’t know about the long-term effects.

Editor’s Note 🍄

The difference between a neurotypical person and a person with ADHD experiencing these effects is the intensity. For example, people with ADHD struggle with maintaining their attention span. On shrooms, everybody feels like it’s easier to focus. But for people with ADHD, it’s not the matter of being easier. There is a stark contrast between their normal ability to focus, and the one enhanced by shrooms.

Shrooms and Adderall: Possible Effects

Shrooms and Adderall Possible Effects

Shrooms and Adderall make an unlikely pair that could have harmful consequences. Shrooms cause feelings of euphoria, altered perception of time and space, and visual and auditory hallucinations. Adderall causes increased alertness, and dehydration.

The side effects of combining both shrooms and Adderall are: confusion, paranoia, unpredictable changes in mood, and increased heart rate. There is also the risk of overdosing.

On the other hand, an Aderall and shrooms combo can also be a trip improvement. Shrooms may help boost that energy kick one gets from Adderall.

The trip can also end up as a peaceful flow of energy and perception. Seemingly contradicting, it’s a grounded experience (caused by Adderall) of psychedelia and euphoria (caused by psilocybin).

Are Shrooms a “Natural” Adderall?

No, shrooms are not a natural Adderall. Certain types of shrooms have a stimulating effect, but they are not a substitute for Adderall, and should not be used as such.

At this point, there is too little clinical evidence that shrooms could help with ADHD in the long run. Even though, we must mention that shrooms have already been tried to treat anxiety and depression. They have a big therapeutic potential

There are plenty of people claiming magic mushrooms have helped them with mental issues. Apparently, microdosing is a relatively safe way to take “just enough.” Sadly, the anecdotal evidence varies on the dose of the microdose.
