Klonopin making me worse? Depression

Posted by Spriggy on March 24, 2005, at 19:44:01

I kind of did a "test" today that i now I wish I had not!
My dr. prescribed 1 mg of Klonopin in morning and at night. I have only been taking a quarter of that (and sometimes just skip the morning dose altogether).

This afternoon, I thought I'd take the doctor's advice and took the full dose.

At first, I felt kind of sleepy/calm but an hour later, I felt that horrible inner restlessness/agitation (and it is still here) and then WHAM!BAM! that utter complete depression I had over a month ago has just hit me upside the head like a ton of bricks.

I have been feeling moments of feeling "down" but this is that horrible, darkness, hopeless guilty depression that makes you not able to function.

Is it possible that Klonopin is making me worse? I don't know if it's helping much with anxiety (especially considering an hour after taking it my insides did the jumpin jacks thing!), and now I have horrible depression.

The only other thing that is different is that I took my second dose of Lamictal but I took it AFTER i felt this way.. so I don't think that could be it.

Is Klonopin a bad idea? Should I ask my dr. for something else? I know I have to wean off first, and plan on doing it just to see.
