  1. I did back in the winter of 2014-2015 , got really really better then found out my cousin who was like a like a brother was found dead at 33. Took it out of me for a long time. I should go back because I found benefits from it. Stick with her a little longer you will know by then. I dont know how much I can help but hang in there this site is a great place.
  2. How does it make you feel together? I've got about a month over klonopin left. Tomorrow I start taking 25 mg of Zoloft. My dr basically told me he would not prescribe klonopin anymore.
  3. I've yet to get an answer I'm so nervous about taking Zoloft after taking Klonopin. My Dr started me on it to help taper off klonopin. Has anyone had both at the same time?
  4. Hey, it's been a long while since I've posted but I'm back. I wish I could report that I'd been better but that's not necessarily the case. I've been ok but now my battle is tapering off Klonopin. I dont know what happened to the site but I'm glad it's back up I cant tell you how much I value this.

  5. My Dr is tapering me off klonopin 1.0 and I've got about 20 left. Well today he prescribed Zoloft to get me off klonopin. Said I could take both together. Any advice or experience with this?
  6. First time on the interstate in a long time. 5 hour trip that im not sure im ready for . Its only 3 days but Im going to miss my kids very much even though they will je in great hands. Just dont do well away from home.
  7. Well I was told by a friend that it would help out with anxiety yet Ive read several stories on the net that it causes panic attacks! What the heck is the truth? Anyone take vitamin b complex? Looking for solid answer.
  8. Thank you for letting me know.
  9. Ive had some major issues with travel lately. I have been taking Klonopin 1mg sometimes twice a day (2mg) but not everyday I take full amount. Anyway due to my struggles my dr increased my dose by another 1mg a day (1.5mg twice a day). Now im up to 3mg a day! I have taken a 1.5 in the morning but only a half in afternoon. To get to the point what is the largest mg prescribed and does anyone have any insite to how it helped or side effects? I just suffer with agoraphobia but the only side effects os drowsiness.
  10. My Dr recently took me off Klonopin and switched to xanax. Even though he said it was safe to take right away how long should I wait? My last klonopin was actually two days ago?
  11. Ok , it was weird I was driving and it was like someone was crushing my head.
  12. Pressure. My side of my face and neck feel warm the rest of my head feels like it's squeezed.
  13. Head feels like it's gonna explode! Seriously scared I'm gonna have a stroke I'm so stressed out.
  14. Had two trips to the ER because of rapid heart during panic attacks. By 22 It all went away but now for the last 3 years and counting (34now) Anxiety and Panic are back. I've had about 4 major attacks that lasted more than 20 minutes per and many,many that lasts maybe a few minutes. I've developed several phobias along the way. Hang in there everyone.
  15. I'm about to take some this evening as well but have always been afraid to take it too much even though I take low dose. It started not working as well about four months ago as I was driving a small distance back home and I still had a major attack. It use to wipe out anxiety for a while but now its NOT too much.
  16. Been drinking it since late Tuesday and have found a profound effect. I have taken klonopin a few times with it ( safe to do) but I can feel a major difference. Today I've been worry free and anxiety feels less and less each day I will report back in a few days. I add Lemon juice by the way with it.
  17. Yep I have them going places and it's real hard. I went over to visit my aunt and got ultra shaky feeling and then again at the store.
  18. I do the same thing everyday when I'm about to hit the road. I hate anxiety but hopefully you can relax and get a good night's rest. I'm trying to look at things in a better light for myself because I can sure script situations before they happen. Hopefully l works out.
  19. I'm not saying I want to drink on it but on a Friday night can I have some wine with my wife?

    So I've started this morning take 5HTP because I'm not and have not taken any benzos in a long while. I hope this will help because I'm really trying to stay away from any prescribed drugs they have been nothing but failures for me. I do have a few questions about it though. First, if anyone has has success with it how long before you notice a difference? I hoping it will call my nerves because it will hopefully take the edge off. Second, I want to make this clear I never drank while taking benzos or even if I took on in the morning I still never had a drink at night. Not that I'm a big drinker but I would like to enjoy a beer here and there. With this in my system is it ok?
  21. Hang in there ok. I've been down those roads myself and felt madness like this
  22. Guess I did quit taking them a few months back never felt any withdrawal though. Just annoyed by it all.
  23. Is there anything that can produce a calm sedative feel much like alcohol minus being drunk just slightly buzzed if you know what I'm getting at. I use to take klonipn but he's seem to quit working and recently I've tried herbal remedies with no luck. Yesterday I had about four beers and felt great , was relaxed until i work up at 3 am and now I'm so tired feeling. Bottom line is I hardly drink anymore but dammit it at least seems to help but I know it's not the answer! Are there any benzos that have a quicker onset? Or actually help?
