Scared to go to bed
Aug 14, 2005
So I've been reducing my Topamax since it raising my anxiety levels a lot....tonight I went down to 50mg from 75...and an hour and a half after taking it my anxiety went WAY up. More than usual. Getting tons of pseudo seizure type things...chest and head tense up...lots of blinking, eye twitching. So I just took .5 Lorazepam to calm me down. This is the first time I'm taking benzo at night. I've really only used them to calm me down during the day when I've needed to go somewhere, but I was starting to feel out of control. I was actually scared I was going to get a full blown seizure if I didn't calm down. But I'm scared to go to bed under the full influence of a benzo. I haven't ever done that before and I don't know what it can do to me. I know they can be powerful sedatives, and I know that topamax can also be sedating as well to an extent. What should I do? I'm partially afraid of sleeping like 16 hours....but I'm more afraid that I may be over sedating myself for a bad way.
