Re: Klonipin
Nov 22, 2003
Hey again,,


I just wanted to add another of my two cents...lol. I really dont find Klonopin to be addictive (which is why my doc switched off xanax which is definately addicting), but again...everyones chemical make-up is different. I think so many people have so many different chemistrys along with different docs, different opinions and different dosages...this is bound to confuse you! You doctor hopefully knows you best and you should probably stick to the dosage he prescribed for you instead of hearing everyones opinion on how much you should take etc...we are not doctors after all! If you find the doctors dosage prescribed too much, or makes you drowsy etc...talk to him to switch or go to a lower/higher dosage but you should only do that with his say so. He may tell you to start slow and do half a pill! Again, good luck as I am sure we all have your best interest at heart. Just keep in mind what may be great for one person may be not so great for another. We are all different with different chemical make-ups!!

Maybe you guys can help me! My doc won't give me klonopin or xanax because he thinks I will be addicted to it, I am on generic prozac right now and I need something to take the edge off really bad. I tried generic ativan and it did nothing!!! He put me on an anti psychotic called seroquil to help me sleep. I don't feel comfortable taking it at all. It is also 180.00 to get it, I can't afford it. he gave me samples and I took them but I can't afford the 180.00. I don't drink alcohol or do drugs....I used to years ago but I am not an adict. What do you think? Change doctors? That is what I am thinking. Maybe I can go to my regular doc instead of my psych and get a rx. Please any advice would be great. I am so tense I clench my jaw and have restless legs all of the time. I have been on the fluoxotine for over a month now. thank you :angel:

I don't find Klonopin to be addictive either, but I also never got addicted to xanax either. You could try a psychiatrist, they understand meds for our condition better than a GP doc. Most GP's are more internal med & don't keep up with the side affects etc. of the AD's.

Oh, I like the prozac, It has helped a lot!!! I just want something to take the edge off a little when I do get panicky. I am seeing a psych now and he denied me of the klonopin and xanax because of my PAST. I made an apt to see another psych on friday and maybe he will understand. The psych I am seeing right now is a freakin retard and all he can do for me is give me anti psychotics that have potential very harmful side effects. I feel comfortabe on the prozac, It is very safe. I just want to try a benzo before bed or during the day. I have had a hard time sleeping since I started the prozac, that is the only negative thing about it. Thank you for your advice!!!!!!! :angel:
