Thanks so much for your question.

Creatine is a chemical found in muscles and certain foods. It is also a type of dietary supplement commonly used for improving exercise performance and muscle mass. Creatine may interact with some prescription medications by reducing their effectiveness and/or increasing the risk of side effects and complications from taking those medications. Do not take creatine without first consulting your doctor.

Dextroamphetamine is a psychostimulant drug which is known to produce increased wakefulness and focus as well as decreased fatigue and decreased appetite. It is used for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy.

Creatine is a nitrogenous organic acid that occurs naturally in vertebrates and helps to supply energy to all cells in the body, primarily muscle.  

In my opinion as far as you are fine it should be ok since creatine affects the neuromuscular system and the second is more focused in neural pathways in the brain.
Hope this helps!
