I need a pharmaceutical PRN. What do you all use?

I might ask my psychiatrist for 2 pills/month of Clonazepam.

What’s everyone else using as a PRN for when things get rough?

I can take up to 15mg of diazepam a day at the moment.

According to wikipedia

It is taken by mouth, and it may take up to four weeks for an effect

So that’s probably not going to work for me unfortunately :frowning:

I use Seroquel. It calms the psychosis and has a slight sedative effect, which is good because I tend to get restless.

I take Clonazepam about 2 times a week, 3 max, min 1.

I’m on no APs (under supervision of my pdoc)

Ask for 15 pills, you dont need to take them all.

Better be safe than sorry.

I take gabapentin PRN. It’s not super potent, but it takes the edge off an attack just enough for me to remember my coping skills.

I’ve got some Ativan for when things get bad. Haven’t needed it for several weeks now since the move.
