Hello BobbieDobbs,

Based on ancient and not so ancient posts to Psycho-Babble, Klonopin + Adderall or Klonopin + Provigil can make a big and long-lasting improvement in social functioning.

AndrewB was taking Adderall and memantine or acamprosate by day, and Klonopin by night. The memantine or acamprosate was preventing Adderall tolerance. AndrewB is still going strong several years later.

Rick is taking Klonopin in morning and afternoon, and Provigil in the morning. Going strong after several years.

Ame Sans Vie is taking Klonopin, AdderallXR, and dextromethorphan to try and prevent stimulant tolerance. I'm not sure how long his current results are working.

Anyways, the meds they are taking in common are Klonopin and Adderall (or Provigil).

It looks like I'll next ask my edoc for a combination of klonopin and Alertec (a less expensive version of Provigil from canada). If that does not work out, I'll ask for Klonopin + Adderall. If Adderall is problematic, I'll ask for a combination of Klonopin, acamprosate for 10 days before adding Adderall again.

By the way, I am feeling pretty good with my current trial of zopiclone for sleep. It doesn't seem to help much with sleep, I'm still sleeping 10 hours a day, but I am feeling more relaxed and social during the day... even more so with a cup or two of Starbucks.
