On 4mg of clonazepam my mind is still racing


Recommended Posts

at night i can't stop thinking, its one, its another

 

fast fast fast

 

During the day this doesn't happens that much. Yesterday I took 4mg of klonopil and my mind kept thinking really fast, but I could sleep 7h.

 

This is the only benzos that works for me for anxiety, the last week and half I have been sleeping less than 4 hours, somtimes only 2hours.

 

Now it's here 21.49 or 9.49pm and I feel high, really high, but during the day I feel normal. I guess I need another 1mg to sleep this night. I took 1mg this evening.

 

I don't like taking benzos that much... whem....

I think there could be better options for sleep, especially if wanting to avoid tolerance.  I agree with notloki. 

Also, if the racing thoughts could be more of a mood vs. anxiety symptom, then maybe an AAP addition or increase could help.

I can't take almost any aap.

and ativan made me more anxious.

Clonazepam is the only benzo that works for me, I have tried many. With diazepam, lormetazepam and others I didn't sleep more than 2-3h ...

 

 

I don't feel anxious, but I am afraid my doc is gonna say I am too high.

Have you tried Ambien to sleep?

Yes, I did.

 

I have some problem with med metabolisim -more side effects and less possitive effects, longer half life, IE, a med that with 4-6 hours half life had more than 24h on me-.... so I can't take most of meds, even if the dose if under the therapeutic one.

You don't have to answer this if you don't want to, but was wondering why today will be the last day you take them?

Dependence and possible addiction.

Instead today I wen to the day hospital and gave a short letter to the psychiatrist to warn him so entities cannot harm me because my pdoc will know. The cannot earn more power for now because someone knows so I have more time without them controlling me until I see my psychiatrist on friday,   and I had aleady shut them down a bit with clonazepam -their main weapon is fear and anxiety-

I think that going to the day hospital is a step in the right direction.  And giving your pdoc a short letter was a really good idea. Great job!

I am not impressed with Klonopin's hypnotic effects. Have you tried Ativan ? You might want to consider not using benzos for sleeping but try one of the "Z" drugs, seroquel, or another sedating med.

 

I also am not a fan of the hypnotic effects - as well as the amnesic effects which I've experienced before. I'll just black out and not remember anything. Sucks.
