I am currently taking:
120 mg Phenonbarbital (for epilepsy)
1.5 mg of Klonopin (just went back on today) for anxiety
15 mg. of Prozac for Anxiety and Depression
10 mg of Ambien as needed for sleep

I tried Lexepro and LOVED it but I could not stand the lactose that is in it and after several weeks had to come off of it and go back on the Prozac. I have had similar reactions to a lot of the other SSRI's in that they either hype me up or make me extremely tired. I think a lot of it has to do with the way my body metabolizes and the fact that I have been on Phenobarbital for so long and it mixes with EVERTYTHING.

We are going through a tough spell with our adult daughter (23) and my mother has been given 30-60 days to live. I know I'm under a lot of stress right now and it was probably not a good time to try and change medicines. Of course, having two doctors wanting to do two different things doesn't help. I think for now I better stick with what I am most comfortable with. I don't care what anyone says.... you can go on anothe benzo but you are still going to have withdrawals. After just taking a .5 mg. of the klonopin today the anxiety has decreased 75%,

I'm hoping after all the smoke clears I can maybe switch to another medicine. What I would love is to not take any benzo at all.
