  • Are all these medications ok to take together? The suboxone is only 1mg in the morning, the clonazepam is not daily, the Xyrem is for sleep, and the Adderall is for narcolepsy.

  • ***comments for Modafinil only*** I do not mix my meds. I take only 1 med a day however it is prescribed. The Adderall and or Ritalin only last 3 or 4 hours and it's not worth taking. I've been on the natural supplements all my life and except for occasional kidney discomfort I have been thankful that I've had them. I also used to take ephedra when it was legal and it was very effective for my condition.
    The muscle spasms started about 3 weeks into taking the meds. Extreme pain. I didn't know at the time what was happening. I know I didn't do anything physically to cause such a degree of spasms. I went online and discovered all 3 meds can cause it so I stopped for a week and the spasms stopped and slowiy the pain dissipated. I need these meds especially the Modafinil. It does the best job I take the 200mg once a day. I took one Sat. and today is Mon and I took one this morning. My shoulder is becoming sensitive and I know by the end of the day I will be very uncomfortable so I will skip 3 or 4 days before I take it again. Is there anything I can do other than what I am already doing? I don't want to take Flexoril or muscle relaxers that totally defeats the whole purpose of taking the Modafinil.
