Thanks to everyone for sharing their thoughts. What does the dopamine do for our moods?
Does the Zoloft affect any other brain chemicals?
I've been taking the Klonopin (.5 mg) an average of once every three days for the past month to help me settle down at night and sleep better. I know this question has probably come up a thousand times here, but how long (asuming all other factors being normal) could I safely keep taking the Klonopin at that rate?


> Hi!
> Zoloft at 100mgs is supposed to have a dopaminergic effect, but I don't think that is necessarily what you need if you are experiencing panic and anxiety. It doesn't seem like a good idea to go through all the energizing effects of dopamine if you are essentially trying to calm down !?
> If you are comfortable at 50mgs, tell your doc you want to stay there for now. It takes a while to find out if your body responds well to a certain dose. The worst that can happen is that you get only partial relief, in which case you can always titrate up or find an augmentor like Buspar or Klonopin.
