Whoa Nellie! You're losing me!
Diazepam only in eve' would never stay in my system long enough to last 24 hrs.
Nor? You mean Val extended relief (or whatever)? That gets eaten up in fast metabolizers such as I, and I end up needing two doses a day.
Clonazepam .. Klonopin, right? In my experience, good for low stress maintenance, but not high stress .. inducing high anxiety.
I would love to go back to, and stay on alprazolam, rather than diazepam, but doc's take me off it as my tolerance to it builds rapidly and I require about 8 a day.
Where did I miss the answer to 'what is galantamine'?
I'm being helped quite a bit by a magnesium citrate w/ silica and B3.
Whoa .. what if I were w/o my narcotic?
I must admit that val (diazepam) keeps me a little 'sad'. But then I'd rather be a bit sad than 'dead to any emotion' or 'running about and screaming 'I can't take this anymore!'
Can't see a new P now until a month from now.
Thank goodness 'my spine is all torn up' (sarcasm) and I'm allowed Percocet. Can't imagine I could go on at this point w/o it.
Are any of you w/ GAD also thrown into the borderline file?
Tks for helping me make some sense of the prior posts and 'this jumbled-up post'
