Seroquel, Effexor, Klonopin, Methylin

Recommended Posts

Right now I take Effexor XR 75 mg/day and Methylin 20 mg 2X/day.  I've been taking 5 mg of Abilify but don't know that it's doing anything.  The Effexor works better as time goes on, especially for Social Anxiety.  I have had trouble sleeping and continue to have problems with anxiety and anxiety attacks (though I am able to kind of control them better).  I'm thinking of asking for 25 mg of Seroquel to take at night for sleeping, and 1 mg of Klonopin to take 1-2X/day PRN.  Does this sound like too much?  I am starting to feel better but the sleeping problems are causing all areas of my life to suffer, and the anxiety, as always, is a bitch.

I'm going to ask for 25 mg of Serequel for bedtime as well. 

I know it's fine with Effexor, lots of others here take it.  I'm not sure how it interacts with Methylin or Abilify though.  Someone else on here must have a similar cocktail.

Sounds like we're in the same boat these days Ahalo.

I'll probably drop the Abilify.

I'm trying to be patient but it's hard when I'm going on 3 - 5 hours sleep a night and my brain wants 8 1/2 - 9 hours rest. 

So my plan is:

Effexor XR increase to 150 mg (hopefully)

Seroquel 25 mg/night for sleep

Methylin 20 mg 2X/day for ADHD

Klonopin 1 mg 1-2X/day for Generalized Anxiety/Panic Attacks

I'll keep my fingers crossed my pdoc will like my suggestions...
