I recently started subutex for opiate addiction. At my initial visit I was also prescribed adderal for adhd. Should I be on adderal? I'm a addict.

You are right to be. Cautious. But your prior history, doesn't mean u can't take it. It does mean that u should be monitored extra carefully. There are those that would claim your addiction was the result of your untreated adhd. I've seen that situation many times.

Addiction doesn't... Preclude taking a psychostimulant but caution is recommended. There is much research to show that rates of addiction are higher in those w/ undiagnosed/untreated adhd.
