  1. met with psychiatrist last friday and was asked when/how i take/manage/remember to take my meds and when I mentioned I took my Vraylar in the morning she expressed concern and asked why I took it in the AM. I simply told her it doesn't sedate me at all and I struggle to keep up with multiple dosages per day and remembering to take meds in the evening. She suggested that even though I don't feel sedated or tired from taking Vraylar in the morning, in addition to 40mg Valium and 0.5mg Xanax, switching to dosing at bedtime (the Vraylar plus Valium) may decrease my need to use a sleeping aid
  2. I have been taking 1-2 Klonopins a day for a few years and prior to that more Ativan prn than Klonopin. Recently it seems all I have needed was 1 mg a day of Klonopin. I have also been wanting something shorter acting for prn use. So I proposed to my pdoc that we change my benzo script to 1 Klonopin every day and 1 Ativan as needed. So I get 90, 1 mg Klonopins and 60, 1 mg Ativans in a 90 day period.(I get 90 day fills on all meds except Schedule I I) Pdoc seemed to like this. It seems to be working fine.
  3. Has anyone done this successfully? How did you deal with your anxiety--social, GAD--without your benzodiazepine? I've been taking it as prescribed since 2003. I am addicted.
  4. Is this true? My counsellor says I need to get away from these meds. What better things are there for me to take?
  5. I tapered of ativan because I felt like it was making me like the energizer bunny. I would start reading a book, 15 min later do dishes, 20 min later go on a run, 10 minutes into the run get tired of it, go inside watch a tv show for 10 min, then do something else. I couldn't focus on one damn thing at a time. Well I refilled the prescription and I felt great yesterday and the day before but now I actually feel more anxious. Not exactly anxiety per se, but almost like an agitation that makes me on edge, makes me worry more. I function better. Showering, cleaning, not daydreaming all day or dis
  6. So I have been on xanax 1mg two to three times daily for about 1-1.5 years now; Paxil is great and I don't need xanax when on paxil but it makes me manic as hell so that isn't really an option. Been thinking whether Zoloft would be any different.... Anyway, still on xanax same dosage, but just doubled my valium from 10mg at night to 20mg at night because I was waking up from sleep with difficulty breathing and panic symptoms. I asked to try ativan, eliminate the antipsychotic i use for sleep mainly since ativan 2mg really helps with insomnia, and get rid of the valium. Well she said lets try i
  7. So I was getting #90 1mg xanax a month since October 2017, but then my doctor found out I wasn't taking them as prescribed. I would get my script filled and take 2-6mg at a time instead of 1mg only 3x a day. Some nights when I might take upwards of 10-12mg and combine with alcohol (I know very dangerous). I would black out of course, broke my macbook just a month ago and don't remember how the damage happened at all. One month I got duplicate scripts by accident and filled 1 through my medicaid and the other script through my private insurance so I got #60 and then #90 from another pharmacy. I
  8. Hi there everyone. This seems to be the most realistic of the sites I've found, and doesn't seem to entirely be filled with people with truly crazy or insurmountable problems. So, here is mine. I've long hated psychiatrists, and like may, have resorted to all kinds of self medication in order to get through life. Life started to get very difficult for me about 2 years ago, and I ended up ordering a boatload of valium off the dark web. Yes, in hindsight, I should have gone to see a doctor back then, but I did not. Despite how it sounds, I kept to a pretty standard dose of valium - 10
  9. Hey y'all, I used to be Crazy Jack here. (I think?) I forgot my password and have switched ISP's so I return to the forum as CrazyTown. For years now (about 6, I think) I've been on Lexapro and Clonazepam for General Anxiety Disorder, Depression, and PTSD. I was up to 30 Mg of Lexxy (name brand) but throttled back to 20 Mg a few months back. I can take up to 4 Mg of Clonazepam per day via PDOC instructions. I see him every 3 months for follow up. Life has been better since I've been on and adjusted to the meds. Then, out of no where, disaster strikes, real close to home. It pu
  10. i've been on clonazepam for 2.5 weeks. if i stop taking them entirely (a dose of .5-2 per day), will i go through with physical withdrawal or is it too soon?* *i know no one's a medical professional, etc.
  11. I started Klonopin about six weeks ago after attempting to live life off benzos for quite some time and ending up in the hospital several times for panic attacks. At first, Klonopin seemed to balance me quite nicely, but as time goes on it seems like the effects are getting stronger depending on the day and dose timing, and after a few days of consistent dosing I start I feel really out of it, like I took twice the dose I did. Has anyone experienced this? Could this be an interaction with anything I'm taking? (See signature)
  12. I recently started seeing a new P doc-- guy immediately takes me off 50 mg of Seroquel after my complains about weight gain and lethargy and puts me on up to 3 mg of Ativan to take at night. Not a little bit of Ativan here and there for anxiety-- like what I assume most people take, but one big dose to take at night only for sleep. I have terrible insomnia. Is that safe to take 2 mg at once at night? So far I have been taking 2 mg nightly ( every night) for sleep. Been sleeping okay. He also started me on 5 mg Abilify because to be safe, my treatment team agrees I need to be on anti-psycho
  13. I hope this is the right place to post this... As you can see from my signature, I have multiple dx and have tried several different rx over the years. The problem I've run into is that my depression causes me to be extremely lethargic and fatigued, no matter how much rest I get...but I also have anxiety and panic attacks. Most antidepressants that work for anxiety tend to be pretty sedating. This does not work for me; I'm tired enough already. I've also had problems with SSRIs in general. I've been taking Wellbutrin for a few months now; my dosage was increased about 6 weeks ago. I ha
  14. I need info quickly/urgently about Xanax (and to a lesser extent Klonopin) and how much I should take to be effective at combating severe anxiety without putting me into a coma or anything...I have SERIOUS obligations both tonight, tomorrow and the next day and my extreme anxiety is currently preventing me from meeting those obligations. I was just prescribed Xanax today and I'm trying to figure out how much to take, but before I go on I think it's very important to know my history with benzodiazepines...I know it's long (sorry), but I believe it definitely plays a role here: SITUATION/SUMMAR
  15. I have been using Xanax ( one quarter of a 0.5 mg tablet every night for about six months. I had been having some autonomic dysfunction issues and the Xanax helped immensely with the heart palpitations. I went to see a sleep specialist and he wanted to try me on Klonopin since I had taken it years ago and seemed to remember having no problems with it. But what an unpleasant surprise to find that I was having trouble breathing while falling asleep, and to wake with extreme irritability which quickly turned into a non stop crying jag. Has anyone else ever experienced symptoms of excessive cr
  16. Hi everyone, After my second hospitalization my psychiatrist added 600 mg. Quetiapine to my rx plus... some other AP (yes, I remember it was an AP and not an AAP) I don't remember the name of anymore --anyways it's not important, I took it for 4 days after my hospitalization and now (under the psychiatrists directions) am off this second AP. The thing is I've sort of become addicted to my Quetiapine night dose (400 mg.), I need it in order to sleep. If I don't take it I don't sleep, as simple as that. At the most, without Quetiapine, and after going to the gym or other heave physical a
  17. I have been on different benzos for 7 years and I always knew where to get them. Now the person who got them for me left the country and I should find some other ways of getting them. I am searching for reliable vendor with benzos... Yesterday I received an email from medstore-online.com, they seem to have a good reputation in internet, however I have never used online pharmacies myself.. if anyone had any experience with these guys, I would be very happy to know your opinion as for their service..
