Work with doctor: You need to work very carefully with your doctors -- your ob-gyn and your prescribing psychiatrist -- to manage your pregnancy and the medicines you're on. Although these medicines may result in some problems for your baby, going through active opiate or benzodiazepine withdrawal could be much worse. A maternal-fetal medicine specialist could help: www.

Right: While there are potential interactions between a few of your medicines, the coq10 should not interact with lexapro, (escitalopram) suboxone, atenolol, hctz, klonopin, levothyroxin, and vyvanse.

Is it legal for a doctor to perscribe 60mgs of aderral, 16mgs of suboxone, and 8mgs of klonapin a day?

For the same person?: Whether something is legal or whether it is good medical practice are two different things. It is legal, but not at all good for a doctor to prescribe all three of the drugs to the same patient. I wonder if it is a so called "pill mill? " the combination of opiates like Suboxone and Klonopin (clonazepam) can be deadly. The Klonopin (clonazepam) dose you mentioned (8 mgs/day) is very high. I would not trust such a doctor. ...Read more

Slowly tapering Suboxone is usually best. ...Read more

Splitting doses: If more comfortable, or avoiding side effects, splitting doses could help you. Most likely, there is no difference in the final effect. If any, it could be the subjective effect of handling medications more often, or relieving anxiety doing so. Discuss it with your prescriber. ...Read more

Are Suboxone withdrawals better than roxy withdrawals?

Not necessarily: I have heard patients tell me that Suboxone withdrawal is not as bad and have also heard it's worse. It depends on from how high of a dose one is stopping whatever opiate they've been taking. It is much easier and safer to try and gradually decrease the opiate dose until one is stopping from a very low dose and not a higher dose. The higher the dose, the worse the withdrawal when stopping. ...Read more
