Had a tumor at age 13. a few q's about my meds

i was 13 when i found out that i had a brain tumor. That summer i had it removed at NYU and suffered a stroke during the surgery but after yearly MRI's it shows no sign of returning *knock on wood*

i currently take klonopin .5-.75mg a day and adderall (adderrall) XR 30mg once a day

i have been on the klonopin for over 5 years (taking it on and off) and i started on the adderall (adderrall) 3 months ago

ive been reading A LOT about these medicines online and have read many scary stories about dependency. After taking both of these meds for a while i do see that they do have the potential.

my question:
if i stay at this dose of my meds could i become addicted? i never abuse either of them.
NOTE: i dont take adderall (adderrall) daily and sometimes just take .25mg klonopin in a day (nothing else). and i mean i can feel my brain saying "hey come on its wearing off" but im able to just ignore it

Andrew- can I ask why do you take Adderall (adderrall) post surgery for your brain tumor. Are you ADD or is it required because there's been damage from  your brain tumor? And the klonipin (klonopin)?
