  1. I'm not sure if switching to Xanax XR would help......To be fair, though, I've never tried it.......My best advice would be talk to your doc and see what he/she thinks.......No harm in at least trying it if your doc gives the green light, IMO.
  2. 3 medications is not a lot, although knowing your diagnosis would be helpful, as mentioned by @basuraeuropea above....Would you feel comfortable sharing your diagnosis?
  3. Extra stress can definitely make OCD worse, based on my experiences. What are your symptoms of it "being out of control"? Do you have a therapist you can talk to about this?......I think a therapist would be helpful in this situation., IMO.
  4. Well, since your doc has already prescribed you 4mg per day, the only compromise I can think of right now, would be to try increasing your two doses of Klonopin to 1.75mg, in other words 1.75 mg twice a day.......That would be a daily total of 3.5 mg, though.....You could try that and just see how it affects you.
  5. I guess what I meant to say is, for any future problems, you need another mechanic.
  6. Well, he is acting like a very unprofessional a-hole for not dx'ing it for you today......I don't know if it's possible, but I think you need another mechanic.
  7. Is he trying to find out where the leak is coming from?
  8. He might have to put it on the lift to trace where it's coming from.....It might take some extra time for him to find out, but it is something he should be able to do........I don't get why he won't.
  9. No, that is not unreasonable at all for you to ask that, although many mechanics do charge an extra fee for diagnosing a vehicle problem........Treating you rudely just for asking is terrible, though. How long has he been your mechanic?
  10. I would suggest give a little more time, a few days, a week maybe?.... If things don't improve after a week, I would say call pdoc.
  11. According to the National Institutes of Mental Health, almost 1 in 5 Americans live with a mental illness. https://www.nimh.nih.gov/health/statistics/mental-illness.shtml Quote from the article: "In 2017, there were an estimated 46.6 million adults aged 18 or older in the United States with AMI .This number represented 18.9% of all U.S. adults...." (AMI means "Any Mental Illness") That's nearly 20% of the population of the U.S........Locking up everyone with MI here in the U.S. would be impossible.....Will never happen. All it is, is just more dramatic, meaningless outbursts from Don the Con.
  12. Trump is so ignorant......Mental illness is not the cause of the enormous increase in mass shootings here in the U.S..... The article itself mentioned that other countries have similar rates of mental illness as the U.S. does, but don't have nearly the amount of mass shootings we have here in America..........The article itself also said that less than 25% of the mass shooters here were clinically diagnosed with a mental illness. IMO, Trump is just throwing a bone to his NRA (National Rifle Association) buddies......NRA is one of the groups that greatly support him, and he surely doesn't want to piss them off by getting tougher on gun control laws and background checks. In summary, I think this is just Trump flapping his lips and nothing will ever be actually done...
  13. I have been taking 3mg Klonopin daily for about 6 years or so..........I take it for anxiety and sleep......I have so far not needed an increase in dose, and my doctor has not suggested any increase. However, if you are not stable, and your doc has recommended an increase, if I were you, I would at least give it a try, and see how you do with 4mg..........Just my 2 cents.
