  1. I’ve been waking up early but i feel cold/lazy, so i sleep again for hours. Is there a way to stop sleeping again ?
  2. I have tried buspirone for anxiety. After taking 5mg pill, it knocked me out for 2-3 hours of sleep immediately. Plus its half life is too short like 2-3 hours.
  3. Pdoc said i cant take it due to history of seizures. 2ndly its a dopamine agnoist, so it will worsen my paranoia.
  4. I don’t want to stop my SSRI(paroxetine/paxil). It works great. But i have low libido and delayed ejaculation. Sometimes its very small quantity of semen and sometimes there is no ejaculation of semen at all.
  5. I take my benzo(clobazam) for anxiety/jerks. Its working great but I’m sleeping 17-18hours/day on it. I take it all(12.5mg) at bedtime at around 9-15pm and wake up at 2-30pm Should i try divided dose of my benzo ? Alarm is not working, when the sound comes, I just switch off the alarm and go back to sleep again. Also reducing dose is not helpful cuz i get anxiety attacks and crying spells. Any suggestions u guys have ?
  6. Yes, the benzo is working but was causing memory problems. I just added omega 3 fish oil and my memory is improved very much. Omega 3 fish oil may not be helpful for memory in healthy people I’ve yet to take b-12 and other b vitamins supplement. I will report my experience soon.
  7. Apart from omega-3 and b12, is there any other supplement which i can take to enhance my memory.
  8. When i added clonazepam to clobazam, i started crying. I cant stop or reduce clozapine anyways. Is there any other benzo i can add for anxiety cuz right now clobazam 12.5mg is working but giving me alot of sedation. I take clobazam at 9-20pm and wake up at 2-3pm next day. Which might be helpful from the following list ? https://www.benzo.org.uk/bzequiv.htm I'm looking for benzo which works for long term anxiety without tolerance. I might reduce clobazam to 5mg and add another benzo for anxiety. So basically my plan is to take 2 benzos due to side effects of the first benzo. Here are the meds which i have tried Alprazolam 0.25 → worsening anxiety/psychosis Alprazolam 0.5 SR + clobazam 15mg → Bed wetting Clobazam 10mg(taking since 2.5 years) → Works great for anxiety/jerks but sedation problems and severe cognitive decline(memory problems) from 10mg and above Clonazepam 0.25mg(Took just 1 dose) + clobazam 10mg → crying spells Clonazepam 0.75mg → very sedated till afternoon, brain slow down, cognitive impairment, did not work for twitches at this dose, worsening hypotension Diazepam 2.5mg + clobazam 10mg → bed wetting Lorazepam 0.5mg + clobazam 10mg - worsening anxiety/psychosis, crying spells, feeling sleepy in afternoon
  9. I'm sleeping too much on my benzo(clobazam) 10mg. Earlier i reduced my benzo to 5mg and then the very next day i again increased it to 10mg, that's when the sedation thing became intense. I plan to increase my benzo to 20mg. But i fear too much sedation. What can i do ?
  10. It looks like i only tolerate sedating antidepressants. I've been on paroxetine since 2.5 years. I cant tolerate activating antidepressants. Any suggestions ? I would like to add another antidepressant for mood and panic disorder. Following ADs did not work for me Fluoxetine,Escitalopram, Fluvoxamine, Desvenlafaxine, Vilazodone, Sertraline,Clomipramine,Trazodone, Venlafaxine,Buspirone,Tianeptine
  11. All SSRI/SNRIs except paroxetine gives me crying spells for no reason. Does anybody have any suggestions for treating panic symptoms apart from benzos? I take clozapine 200, paroxetine cr 37.5, clobazam 10mg
  12. Yes, after taking it at bedtime, i felt sedated till afternoon on it. Plus it has alot of drug interactions. It specially doubles the clozapine or any other antipsychotic blood levels
  13. Although literature suggests food does not effect paroxetine(paxil) absorption. Does anyone have any studies or link which suggests otherwise ?
  14. Also as i taper paroxetine up to 37.5mg, right now on 2nd week on 25mg im feeling slight like crying and dry mouth in afternoon. I hope it goes away in 3rd week
  15. Yea i have tried 50mg for 1-2 days. It makes me feel like crying and gives me palpitations. Should i give it more days ? Maybe i can split 12.5mg in half and try total 43.75mg instead. I've not tried 43.75mg though I'm looking for add on. I'm not going to stop paxil ever cuz my mood is too good on it. I just dont know why i tolerate paxil and not other SSRIs. I dont want ADs which increase dopamine cuz that might worsen psychosis just like sertraline does for me
