NeuroBashing Posted July 5, 2009 Share Posted July 5, 2009 Sorry if this has been covered, I checked around a little bit and couldn't seem to find exactly what I was looking for. I was on klonopin not too long back for about two months, found it worked really well at first with my anxiety and paranoia when I'm in public, lessened my claustrophobia in my classrooms and such. Then started to act wrecklessly, craved illicit drugs (in spesific one that I had been clean off for nearly a year), had disturbingly weird dreams, "blacked out" for short periods. Needless to say, I don't think I'll be going back to it. I've also tried Xanax for my anxiety, but for a shorter period of time (won't be doing that anymore either), and these two drugs feel very similiar to me. I've been on a lot of different meds (mostly for depression, which is NOT my main issue), and am sort of starting over from scratch with a new pdoc who seems somewhat more caring then most I've dealt with. At the beginning she suggest that I try Klonopin, Xanax, or Valium. Since I have tried both K and Xan and those felt pretty wrong, I am considering valium. My point and question is this: For those of you that have tried Valium and Klonopin and/or Xanax, does Valium feel the same as the others? I know they're similiar, and I can read for days facts about them, but I would like to hear from people that have experience with these meds what did and didn't work for them and their anxieties with these three. Hopefully that makes sense, sorry for the lack of brevity and elequence this evening. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
