Let me preface this by saying that I am active and work out everyday. I use several workout supplements and drink tons of caffeine. I understand I am an oxymoron that is diagnosed with severe anxiety disorders. I am 5'10" and weigh 210 lbs. I am precribed 6mg of klonopin a day (but often take 7-8mg), 10mg of lexapro, and 45 mg of remeron. My caffeine intake is just under a GRAM per day. I drink 6-8 beers every night and then take remeron. If that does not knock me out I drink more.

Do not judge me I realize where I am headed at age 21. I have been clean from IV cocaine and heroin, or any drug besides the benzo prescribed for over a year. I DO NOT take klonopin to get a buzz and PLEASE DON'T POST about how you do. I am a full time college student and wait tables. I would crumble without a sedative.

With all of that being said, my psych is switching me off of the 6mg of klonopin (he knows I take more) to 2mg ativan 4 times daily. He said for the first week to take a klonopin in the middle of the 2mg ativan doses. This is day one and I feel fine, but am unsure of what to expect. Is he being a good doctor given the situation or should I look for a new psych?

My late mother passed away at 36 being prescribed 3mg klonopin for 16 years (The death was not related to klonopin).

My father takes .5mg Xanax as needed.

Any advice is much appreciate.
