I see it now. For a decade I was on klonopin and had no issues whatsoever with this med. no tolerance, no addiction, no increased dose, it worked great and no withdrawals. I had only really heard about the dangers of benzodiazepines. I still believed it but couldn’t fully comprehend
That was until
My pdoc recommended Ativan better in conjunction with abilify.
Been on Ativan a few months now. My anxiety gets worse and worse. Im hooked. I can’t sleep without it. I need to take an extra pill or more to even feel normal again. Sheesh this stuff is dangerous if you aren’t careful! And I was careful until lately I’ve been feeling like death at times. Until I pop another Ativan I feel better for a few hours and that’s if I’m lucky.
I dialed my pdoc this morning. She’s gonna make room for me soon but this is straight misery.
Still have never felt “high” on benzos. But sheesh this ■■■■ is dangerous.
Does anyone know about taking klonopin to counteract Ativan withdrawals??? Or will I have to wean off it now too to avoid seizures, death risk and irritability and insomnia
