  1. I get acid reflux occasionally.......What I do is simply eat a cup of low fat, plain yogurt, and problem solved. May not work for everyone, but it's a simple home remedy that works for me.......Can't hurt to try it, anyway... https://homeremediesforlife.com/yogurt-for-acid-reflux/

    No problem.....I really hope you can find something to help you sleep..... I'm an insomniac, too, but Trazodone plus clonazepam helps me, personally.

    Oh, ok.......Ask your doc about trying some melatonin--you can buy it over the counter, but be sure to ask doc first.

    Klonopin Palpatations

    That's a pretty low dose.......Most docs start people out on at least 50mg. Maybe it would work for you at a higher dose...

    How many mg of Trazodone did you try..?.... There's also another newer med for sleep called Belsomra......The Belsomra might be on the expensive side, depending on your insurance......https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suvorexant ......Might be worth a try if you can afford it.
  6. I am on clonazepam and have never experienced this type of thing, but perhaps you could drink a cup of coffee in the afternoon before you get tired? Sorry I don't have any better advice......

    Could you ask your pdoc about adding another med to help you sleep?
  8. Thanks for your support, Cheese and coraline.........I plan to keep fighting--I definitely don't want to stay sick....!!
  9. There are some newer AAPs that I haven't tried yet--Latuda, Rexulti, Vraylar, Saphris.......I've also never tried Lamictal, Fetzima, Pristiq, or Trintellix......Haven't tried Geodon either. I just think that telling a patient with MI, that they want to stay sick, was totally out of line. Would a doctor tell someone with diabetes or heart disease that they want to stay sick?....I don't think so.
  10. I was also on TEVA clonazepam for many years, when my pharmacy told me TEVA was no longer available, and they were now using the ACCORD brand. I was worried about it, but I tried to keep an open mind......I have personally had no issues with the Accord brand--I haven't noticed any difference. Have you tried the Accord clonazepam?......Might be worth a shot if you're still having issues. I realize that some people may be more sensitive to changing manufacturers, but I haven't had any problems since switching to Accord. Just throwing that out there.
  11. Thank you all for your support and advice......I know I need another doc.....Just sort of numb right now, but I'll start looking when I recover from this.....
  12. Thanks, Juniper......I am angry and sad, but mostly sad.....**SIGH**
  13. One of my problems is that I get so emotional about stuff like this.......Also, I depend on other people to help me get to appointments.......Then, there's the insurance crap....Trying to find a psychiatrist that takes Medicare can be difficult. Sorry to sound so negative......I can't help it right now....😢 I feel beaten down and have lost some hope from this......I am considering going voluntary IP, which hasn't happened in 4 years now......My motivation has reached an all-time low, and anxiety is full on panic mode......Feel like I can't even make a good decision about anything...... I can't express how depressed I feel that I lost my good pdoc....
  14. I don't know.....I might check to see if I can.....But I have found that docs, and sometimes even therapists, tend to "stick together" (Won't admit that one of their own might be wrong).
  15. I am angry, too...!! I'm very discouraged now because of what she said.......It seems like a very overwhelming task right now to search for another doc.......Who knows, maybe the next one I find could be even worse...!!.........Seems like a roll of the dice to find someone else, but I might have to, again.....**SIGH**
