    hi I'm just curious I am taking subutex and klonopin I am trying to taper off the Klonopin however I find it very difficult I was told I have ADHD and it was given adderall so now I am taking three prescriptions. I have noticed since taking the Adderall I have not been wanting to take so much klonopin or subutex so I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing any suggestions.


  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • I have been diagnosed with gastroparesis and have suffered with it the past two years. I also have ADD and take medication to maintain focus. I have always been a poor sleeper and usually sleep 4 hours a night. I have been unable to remain asleep for the four hours and have been waking up gasping for air the past month. Once this happens, I am unable to fall asleep again and remain awake the rest of the night. Would any of the drugs I currently take be a cause?
