Canyons Dad (12 months ago):
I have been taking suboxone for 4 months and have never had seizures in my life. 2 months after being on 2 mg of suboxone I had a seizure... All of my tests came back normal... Another 2 months later I had 5 seizures in 6 hours... More studies are being done but I feel this is directly related, I am a 38 year old male with no health problems and no history of seizures so I feel suboxone is a dangerous drug!

From this study (2 days ago):
I had a small amount of the hyperpigmentation between the nose and mouth (mustache area) before starting any of the drugs listed above, however, I was on Methadone at the time. That was about 3 years ago. Over the last 2 years it has spread to my cheeks & chin as well. Basically I have darkened skin in the areas of the face that a beard would cover, which causes me to look like I have a beard and mustache.
From this study (3 days ago):
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.
