Re: Anti Anxiety drugs?

Klonopin (clonazepam) is a very effective long-acting benzodiazepine. You might try adding it. I (and many others to whom I've talked) prefer the brand-name in this particular drug. There is, unfortunately, a lot of "benzophobia" brought on by the fact that benzodiazepines are habit-forming. This leads to them being underpresecribed and when prescribed, prescribed in too-low doses. In my own case, I didn't find relief from my anxiety until I moved and found a new p-doc who was willing to trust me and let me raise the dose of the medicine until I felt better (I wound up at 1.5mg).

Best of luck,
