Hi Anita!

I'm on clonazepam (generic K) and it has done WONDERS for settling my nerves. For me, it wasn't irritability but panic disorder.

My first time around on Wellbutrin, I had side effects that took me beyond irritable. WAY beyond. My pdoc put me on perphenazine (brand name Trilafon) at a *really* low dosage -- 4mg/d. It's an anti-psychotic, and it did its job rather well. It was a bit sedating for me, though, even at that low level.

The nice thing about klonopin is that it acts fast. If you give it a trial, you should know within just a few days if its going to deal with the irritability. If you react at all like I did, you'll know an hour after you take the first pill. I'm only on 1mg/d, so I can't say that I've had any side effects at all at this level.

If only I could find an AD that works as well as clonazepam has on my panic! I'd be one happy camper.


PS: gotta schedule another NYC babblefest soon -- CD:if you're out there reading, I'll be in touch via email ... this one's your call.
