Hope you are all having a great weekend.
I dont remember if I posted to say that my PM prescribed me Klonopin .5 x2 at night. So basically 1mg at night. She said it will help with my anxiety for the following day? Is that how it works for everyone else?
I used to be in bed by 8p because every night I just wanted the day to end. Yes, I was hitting an all time low and my PM obviously recognized it and thought the klonopin would help. But I take it at 8p and it doesnt get me high or anything, but it keeps me up and I end up doing a bunch of things. I do not get any energy feeling from it. I've been on meds that give me that boost so I know what it feels like.
So when its time to go to sleep, I'm not as tired as I thought I should be. Some nights I am up until 12 even. I think maybe because I am not so anxious and not so eager to end my day? Who knows.
So now to the following day - the day its suppose to be helping me...I dont necessarily feel great, but just a tad less anxious.
I guess I am just confused on the med. She still wants me to take the Xanax for my panic attacks as well.
So I saw her in the clinic one day and asked her if I could take the Klonopin in the morning instead and, very firmly, she said absolutely not.
Then I had a discussion with my therapist and he told me that I am the FIRST person that she has ever written that script for, and she's been at it for 14 years.
He told me that she saw my emotional state and thought it would be the best thing for me at the moment - however to not expect that they are going to prescribe it to me every month. That I would need to go to a psychiatrist for that sort of thing.
I'm just confused on the whole thing of it. I thought klonopin was alike with Xanax...and they make it seem like it was something they never even prescribe.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
I go back on the 17th because the head of the clinic physician wants to take over my case. So I'm going in to see what his thoughts of the future are for me...and again my therapist told me I should consider myself very lucky as he has never done that either.
I guess they either really want to help me or they see some problem...I have no idea.
I just wish they would end this pain for me.
Sorry - went off on a ramble.
