crazyjunior Posted July 24, 2009 Share Posted July 24, 2009 Hello Everyone, I am crazyjunior. I have been back to the shrink twice and we have agreed on 15mg of Lexapro at night along with .75mg of clonazepam for a sleep aid. It work well sometimes and puts me to sleep fast. However, lately I have been adding .5 mg of generic xanax to the mix to make me sleepy faster. I plan on tapering back to zero xanax within a week. I'd rather save it for those times when I'm feeling real anxious. I had been on 1mg of the clonazepam, but it carried through too much into the next day and made me tired during the day. Doc says this dosage of clonazepam will not be too bad to get off of if and when the time arrives. The xanax is something I decided on my own, as I had 60 extra tablets left over from my previous doctor. I'll tell shrinky next visit, just to be on the up n up. I have never taken more than the allowed amount of clonezepam and have no desire to. So, I think I'm okay there. When I was on the xanax regularly, I was allowed up to 3 x .50mg per day as needed. In the entire time I was on the drug, which was 150 days or so, I took 3 only twice that I can recall. Other than that, most days were one or two. I know these drugs can be very dangerous, so I am very careful. But right now, they are getting me to the place where I need to be. Sleep is very important.
