Klonopin and Agorophobia

Posted by AndyD on July 10, 2003, at 20:05:49

Hello all,

New to this but I really need some type of support, so any kind of advice will be greatly appreciated. I have been suffering from anxiety and panic attacks since I returned from the gulf war (the 1st one). I was in the Marines and pretty much had to keep it a secret (because of that macho stuff) till I got out. Im going to make a long story short. I have suffered from this crud since 1993. Unfortunately, It has no gotten to the point that I have become milidly agoraphobic. I guess that means in my own sick way that I function from day to day very normal..actually anxiety free. However even the thought of having to travel outside of my safe zone causes me to have a panic attack. Not really but..lets just say i wont leave my safe zone to very fact havent in over a year. My safe zone incidently is about 20x20 miles. And this my freinds sucks. Anyway, now for the biggie...I have never, I say again, never used any meds because I am severly pill a phobic. I have used beer to mellow out (and no I dont self medicate daily or anything like that..I drink maybe a 12 pack a month) What does this Klonapin feel like and what can I expect? I have to take this stuff, I need to regain my life doc says this will work and has said to take it as needed. He started me off at .25mg. Any and all advice on talking me into at least trying this would be greatly welcomed.
