Is it safe to take Klonopin and Ritalin together, at the same time? I'm not on any other meds.
Do you take them both at the same time or pretty close together, like less than an hour apart?I do this very often, and have never experienced any ill effects from it. I take .5 to 1 mg of Klonopin, and either 20-30 mg of Ritalin or 54 mg of Concerta. I take ADD medicine every day, and benzos 3 or 4 times a week, so I've used this combo *a lot*.
Meaning you pop the pills back to back? I can't see how that would be beneficial in anyway, except to maybe your toilet water's volume.
Klonopin is a knock-you-out benzodiazepine. Ritalin is an on-your-feet stimulant. NO.
However, my psych knows full well that I want to try out ADD medication when we get my anxiety under control, and he just prescribed me Klonopin, so maybe it's safe to take the Ritalin in the morning after the Klonopin's peak concentrations are over.
You should still be asking a psychiatrist, though. Why haven't you?
