ladyturkey217 Posted June 22, 2011 Share Posted June 22, 2011 So my psychiatrist and I decided to start me on Lamictal about 2 months ago for BP2, and due to my just fabulous panic attacks and freaky stress levels, he also gave me klonopin to take as needed- nothing too major, .5mg. So at my first follow up appointment with him 3 weeks later, I told him the klonopin weren't really all that grand, and I remembered liking lorazepam which had once been prescribed to me by my PCP before my diagnosis (just 2 pills- ever) for a really scary dentist appointment. He shrugged and said I could totally have that instead. Well, now I know why. It's not nearly as effective as the klonopin for me in terms of calming me the heck down when I'm overwhelmed with stress and anxiety. But now here's the problem: I'm afraid to tell him i want the klonopin back because I am terrified he's going to think I'm a junkie or something! I feel like such a loser. Is it okay to ask him for the klonopin again? I was originally given just 30 .5mg tablets, and 9 weeks later i still have 3 left, so I know I'm not a junkie or anything... Maybe I've just watched too many ER episodes, and I worry that everyone is a junkie or lying. What do you guys think? and how should I ask?! My appt is tomorrow! THANKS!!!
