I’ve moved to a new place and my new doctors says ''she doesn’t like to prescribe that medication" - I’m like wtf, this is the only med I’ve been able to have a life with, I’ve been in relationships, and worked full time as a truck driver earning decent pay. I take 1 milligram as prescribed and don’t abuse it and it simply works, I don’t like it cause of it’s hazy side effects but decided out of all the meds I’ve tried in my life time this was the best. Now what can I do? Just go down with the ship and lose my life? Get a new Doc? Lose my income just cause a doc wants a med change or doesn’t want to prescribe it. Albeit I’ve read how addictive Klonopin is but I’m not an addict I’m using it to live , maybe I’ll have to die now? I just don’t know who to talk to or what to do?? Going to another doctor seems deceiptful but also talking to this one to beg or plead seems desperate.
I’ve been on Klonopin ( after trying every med available to mankind ( I’m 52 years old) abiding to the doctors recommendations on sticking to the meds even though the side effects were horrible) for about 5 years, never abused it cause I’m not an idiot - I’m just trying to survive in this world … and now just like this, I have to feel intense tension , irritability – I know I may have built up a slight addcition to 1 milligram of this med, naturally as it is a benzo. Is my minut addiction even harmful compared to all I’m accomplishing while on this med? If it works why change it!? I’m a bit peeved but mostly dismayed … I fear my dismay and tension will lead to darkness
