I've had anxiety/panic disorder for 6 years now, have been on lexapro, seizure medication, and now am taking celexa at a dose of 40mg-the highest allotted dose. at one point last year, though, my doc had me up to 60mg-ugh. that sucked- i was a complete vegetable. Anyways, the celexa has had a significant effect on my lifestyle. when I first began it my anxiey and panic attacks were so severe that I had dropped out of college and could not have a job. I was scared to come out of my bedroom for fear of "losing control". now i work and am back in school but I still have a hard time with doing it. sometimes i can't go and just stay in my house all day. the only thing that helps me is klonopin or xanax. And not large doses or anything,
.5mg of xanax works great and then another .5mg in 6hrs and I have made it through the day. I am well aware of the possibility of dependence since I have heard from every doctor that has repetatively lectured me and hesitantly prescribed it to me. What my problem is, is that I know if I can have the opportunity, the "safe net" if you will, of having that much xanax then I know it would completely change my life and allow me time to feel like a normal person again until everything else I am doing to eliminate my anxiety works. Does anybody else have this problem? For people that are prescribed klonopin or xanax for usage on a daily basis, what did you tell your doctors to get them to prescribe it. At my whits end, Jax21
I have the same problem, nobody will give me another RX for Xanax or Klonopin. I [COLOR="Red"]{REMOVED}[/COLOR] had to beg one of the NP's to give me a prescription for Xanax in Feb. I literally had to cry and have a mini nervous breakdown to get it. I still have that bottle but only have 5 pills left, which I cut in half so 10 more doses. (Over 5 months of the same 30 day supply and they are scared I am going to get dependent on it????? Makes me think doctors are wackjobs) Having the Xanax at hand helps me out alot, even if I do not take it. I have had problems with other meds that have stopped working for my anxiety (Zoloft, Lexapro) and was told to start Lexapro again but it made me feel worse then I actually was so I stopped. Right now, even though I have been feeling really crappy for 6 out of 7 days a week, just having the Xanaxin my purse has helped. I do not know what I am going to do when I do not have anymore. The doctor here suggests that I see a psychiatrist so that they can monitor my meds. I just do not feel the need to go see one. I have been to 2 behavioral therepist that I think have taught me everything that I need to know so what is the point. I guess I have to do what I have to do.
