Bob was down and I've been 'down' too, so just getting back.

Tks Greif

Unfortunately, narcotics work too well for anxiety. That, and having some extra val so can take 1-1/2 or 2, deviating from my regimen due to unbearable anxiety, is what is getting me through this paradox. I've c-spine and t-spine extruded discs. No meds either than aforementioned, not PT or epidurals, have helped. Surgery for a person w/ chronic pain (someone who didn't just get flown in from a car accident) takes the back seat. Trigger point injections are helpful; doc's hold those back .. maybe 3x a yr.

Pain & Anxiety .. re: Neurontin and Topomax. I've been on both and had 'irritating side effects (more w/ Topomax I think)' so prob' couldn't get to high enough dosage; noted no real relief. Butttttt, was on Prozac or Eff-XR alongside, and so may not have been in touch w/ myself.

I'd like to see read more discussion about Neur and Topo tho', for anxiety (as well as pain), and the new one, 'supposed to be better!' ... Lyrica.

Is Ljoltof here, or anyone interested in to follow:

Did you ever have have paradoxical effect (or is it affect?) w/ Valium? If yes, was it dc'd or increased?

Has anyone had a scrip of 10mg 3x a day increased because anxiety was heightening? Did the increase help, on its own, standing alone from any other benzo, for at least couple yrs?

*** I think someone here is on val and klon? I'm wondering if the klon protects one from a paradoxical reaction to val; like a safety valve to catch anxiety overflow?! ***

I definitely vote benzos best medicinal relief
for anxiety. For me .. Ativan not strong enough .. Xanax quickly here and gone .. Klonopin is a snake in the grass, but became obvious was very effective .. Valium saved my life.

Now I'm in 'paradox' and trying to get an idea of a hypothetical med plan that I can present to a P in a way that feels as if I just 'reminded them of an idea they'd not yet brought to the table'. I need to get another P soon, like Tuesday.

Out of space and time .. sooo exhausted. Hope some of above helps one, some, or I, isn't written carelessly. Dropping off ... bw, cf
