GreenGal Posted October 30, 2005 Share Posted October 30, 2005 Hey Guys, I've read about benzos pooping out on some people (which I assume is different from developing a tolerance) and I'm wondering what the best thing to do in that situation is. I was on 0.5mg in the afternoon and 1mg at night which was just changed to 1.25 at night (most pdoc was willing to do) but he made it quite clear he would increase it no more and it's just not enough...he wants me on an AP instead. I refuse to take an AP and I hate that I'm having to suffer when there are so many other benzos out there. I assumed that maybe switching to a different one might help? Am I right on that? Rather than simply increasing the dosage of the Klonopin? Also, my "main" problem is sleeping...I mean, I get lots of daytime panic attacks, mood swings, agitation etc...but the biggest issue is when I try and sleep, so I'm wondering if something like Ambien or Lunesta would be better, but I'm terrified of never being able to sleep again without it. Plus, do you eventually build up a tolerance to them as well? Thanks, Kelly Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
