What are the medical concerns for stopping 100mg Adderall habit?  Abuse has lasted 6mos. Also on 60mg cymbalta, 5mg abilify, (aripiprazole) and 1 mg suboxone.

You may be tired for a couple of days after you stop the adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). Otherwise, it should be okay.
