Re: Klonopin + Adderall...me too btnd

In reply to Klonopin + Adderall killer combo, posted by btnd on February 14, 2003, at 13:52:12

I have been on Klonopin for almost 2 years. I take 2mg daily. I started taking Adderall XR a week ago.


I started taking Klonopin when I was diagnosed w/ bipolar disorder. My diagnosis has now changed to ADD, even though I think I have both. I also have temporal lobe epilepsy, which causes weird sensations, strong deja vu, and so on. I've had 2 Grand Mal seizures in my life, one 8 yrs ago, the other about a month and a half ago. I used to take Dilantin for seizures...too many bad side effects. The Klonopin was prescribed to me for aggitation/moodiness/anxiety, but it also controls seizures.

I have noticed some nice benefits from the Adderall, such as increased concentration, etc. I am still really moody, & irritable. I think I have been on the Klonopin for so long that it doesn't do much for me anymore, except for control the seizures. That is the main reason I am still taking it.

I hope the combo keeps working for you. I go see my pdoc Monday. I hope I can find a combo that works good for me, in regards to my anxiety, irritability, and insomnia. I also have a problem with caring about what everyone thinks about me. That is not gone.

Good Luck!!! Sounds like you are feeling really great. Thats good to hear, there seems to be a lot of sad people right now here at psycho babble & social babble. It's nice to hear when someone is feeling better!!!
