I won't place blame, but it isn't obviously the best idea... Its a low dose, but it can still cause all sorts of things that you've obviously experienced :/
> Now back on it, given me brutal depression, hence the switch over to valium, and a taper from there.
Yes... I see... I tapered my klonopin over to valium not to get off of it or for any particular depression but to see if it helped my complex anxiety disorder better. (and it has a longer half life anyhow) It's been going on about par so far, give or take a bit now and then.
> For the mean time, i was looking to cymbalta, lamictal or wellbutrin for some stablization and/or depression boost.
Oh.. now I remember something about China. I'm afraid I'm not the best advice on overseas medication. Generally western medicine there is pay up front and all but I'm sure you know more about it all than I know. I dont know if they control substances tightly like some Asian countries do, and whether you can import anything?
I can find scant information that you can bring medication into China, however once there I dont know if you can secure modern medication from overseas or through Hong Kong. You might want to contact the embassy in Beijing at (86-10) 6532-3831, which I'm sure you already have.
