Taking Adderall with Redbull will cause a double dose of withdraws once a user stops. Not only will the body have the usual caffeine withdraws, it will also have Adderal withdraws.
Adderall withdraws are almost the same as caffeine, except that the symptoms are more severe. You will be sleepy and tired even more than caffeine. You will also have stronger cravings.
It is recommended that you quit caffeine and Adderall slowly. Slowly lower your dosage of Adderall and caffeine intake over a course of several weeks.
