My pdoc recently swapped out alprazolam (Xanax) 1 mg 3x/day, which wasn't doing anything (neither anxiolysis nor sedation), for clonazepam (Klonopin) 1 mg 2x/day with an extra one as needed (up to 3 mg/day), which is sedating the crap out of me. It's helping the panic and anxiety! But it's also keeping me from functioning daily like I want to.
I'm already on dextroamphetamine (Dexedrine) 60 mg/day and armodafinil (Nuvigil) 200 mg, which I would think would offset the sedation, but it absolutely is not at all.
Is there a solution to this situation? Back off on the dosage? Increase one of the stimulants? (Probably can't increase the dextroamphetamine because my doc won't go past the max dose...) Ride it out until I develop tolerance to the sedation?
In your experience have you taken an antidepressant specifically an SSRI and it made you activated, agitated, irritable and unable to sleep
I have thought about this for a long time but have never signed up. I have bad social anxiety and some attention issues/going mentally blank from anxiety.
1. Has anyone done this for therapetic reasons?
2. Anyone brave enough to make a contract between us, if I do it, you will too? It would mean the world to me to have a buddy.
