chinacat Posted February 20, 2007 Share Posted February 20, 2007 Firt the basics---I am BPII, with ADD, and huge anxiety issues, especially rught now when my life is in pieces. I was put on Klonopin a coule of years ago, it works OKL, but one day (another story) I discovered (while trying to get someone --anyone--to see me at an ER) I took 15 1mg.(TOTAL==15 miligrams all in one dose) and actually felt not much at all. Right now, my doc has me on 1mg. AM and 1 mg. PM--to "Keep a fire from starting, rather than put one out" he says, which seems to make sense-- BUT-- Lets face it--2 mg a day of Klonopin is like an asprin to me. I once, briefly was on Xanax, and after 4 days, missed 2 days--and promptly had the most incredibly awful withdrawal I have ever even seen any one have--like my skin was coming off from the inside. That was at a relatiovely low dose. So--tomorow, off to the pdoc. who ONLY manages my meds, no talking, please--but we gotta talk, cause I am eating Klonopin right now like a madwoman, just to keep from killing someone or being toted offby the men in the coats when the neighbors hear the screams. I have never really taken anything else--well ,Atavan for a dental appt--what a joke--and years ago, Librium, which they gave all "women of a certain age". Basically I seem to have a HUGE tolerance for benzo's, and I need something, NOW. Back on Xanax, and just never miss one? More Klonopin, so I don't run out before the month is over? VALIUM??? A Large rubber mallett? I know our mmileage may vary, but I need some suggestions to take to the good doc inthe AM--HELP!! china Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
