> It's interesting because I was just this morning thinking about switching from Klonopin to Xanax. The Klonopin doesn't seem to be doing it for me and I definitely need an anxiolytic, otherwise anything stressful can tip the scales for me. But I'm wondering why you personally prefer Xanax to Klonopin, or is it just that you prefer Xanax to any benzo due it's AD effect?
I was thinking on the 2nd alternative (its AD effects) but I can also assure you Xanax is a very powerful anxiolytic and anti-stress med too (which is not at all bad for you, I think). And it is not only me to say so; listen what our co-babbler Dazer (near the bottom of the board) says he feels like with it: 'more energy, less anxiety, higher mood, [little or] no sex s.e.'.
I assure you that chemical was the best thing I came across in the last few years; it was my family doc that first suggested it to me and I assure you that woman is 'fire': I never saw her put her money on the wrong horses, she is smart as the devil himself...
Of course it may prove useless to you but I'd bet rather to the contrary... Also, you know, in this tricky matter of depression sometimes a 'wag' can make the whole difference. So, don't loose momentum and all the luck in the world!!
Don't forget to tell your precious hubby I send you a kiss.
> Your advice about alcohol is well taken. This morning after a few brandy's last night I was ready for the slag heap. I want to monitor how the increase in Rem will affect sleep/waking patterns and tying one on rather pollutes the experiment. So today I'm feeling kind of jaggy and can't contribute any useful med experience other than confirming your alcohol warning.
