mejeba Posted September 10, 2008 Share Posted September 10, 2008 I take Wellbutin 300 mg, Epival (Depakote) 750 mg and Clonazepam 2 mg. Lamictal discontinued for lack of funding. I went on the Wellbutrin to target my anxiety, said my pdoc, as well as to help with the ongoing depression which was not the major problem at the time. It was great- I got nicely energized and rather euphoric for a few months. Then that ended. Splat. I've just heard that Wellbutrin is known to CAUSE anxiety- according to someones's pdoc. So it's used to target anxiety and causes anxiety. hmmm As for the Clonazepam, I've been on that for 2 yrs, and Ativan before that. They both control my sleep problem (waking up with remorse and self-hatred etc. and not getting back to sleep for hours). I take the Clonazepam in the am as well as pm (no sedation effect) for Anxiety, says pdoc. Now I hear that long term use of Clonazepam is known to cause depression. I hear that obsessive thinking, anxiety causing ruminations can be helped by Serequel or other AP better than by Clonazepam, and work for sleep problems too. So I'm seeing my pdoc next week and I want to ask intelligent questions. I frequently bring up my concern for the dependence thing with the benzo, but he says that the anti-anxiety benefit outweighs that issue, especially at the low dose I take. any brains I can pick here?
