Dreamer (and Kat)

Funny, I never know who I'll bump into around the corner or in this case on another board.

Dreamer, as Kazoo would say, be specific and you if you can't yadaa yadaa. What drug are you talking about? And what are you using it for? To fall asleep? To stay asleep?

Are you still on the effexor? Sleep doc added clonazepam to my "cocktail" to help with the twitching, which the effexor had worsened, and I won't consider giving up the effexor because it helps me with the cognitive issues so much. So I guess I'm using the clonazepam to help improve my sleep and if it works I'll be on it for quite some time. Now I've also been given lorazepam by my gp to help with anxiety during my last bout with depression. When I asked for this rx to be refilled (this was before the clonazepam) over the phone the receptionist made me make an appointment to discuss my usage of the med. More yada yada! Sleep doc said the lorazepam doesn't help with the twitches, hence the other med. So in my opinion, some sleep meds can be used for a longtime.

Kat regarding keeping meds in the house, I think this is a good idea. With rx's that have large quantities you can ask for smaller ones with repeats. (I guess the good Wise Owl has had some depressive episodes with anxiety?)
