Can we take 2 benzos ?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

My anxiety/crying was fine on clobazam 20mg. But i started sleeping all day after some time of taking it.

So we reduced clobazam from 20 to 15mg. And the sleepiness has gone away but I'm feeling like anxious/crying now.

Pdoc declined to stop clobazam.

I was thinking maybe we can add low dose of clonazepam(klonopin) to my current benzo ?

What if u wanted to increase the dose of your benzo but cant due to side effects ?

Would adding 2nd low dose benzo makes sense ?

IF benzos are making you sleepy, they all will to some degree. Sedation is a common characteristic of all benzos. They also potentiate each other making common characteristics many times more stronger.

You could lower clobazam and add a low dose of lorazepam that you take regularly, like 0.5-1 mg 2-3x/day. Maybe. Idk, though, I'm not an expert.

I say lorazepam because it has the lowest incidence of drug-drug interations.

The other thing to do I say would be to switch to something like clorazepate. I took 45 mg/day clorazepate without any sedation.
