> Perhaps Rob is not experiencing insomnia/anxiety due to taking Klonopin?

One of the studies suggested that 12% of patients had trouble with insomnia vs 7% with placebo (5% more than placebo).

I have taken klonopin for 12 years and even with it have had trouble getting a good nights sleep. Before going on EMSAM I recently went to a overnight sleep study that showed I have trouble going to sleep and staying asleep and that I also don't hit stage 3 or 4 sleep (at least during the study). Sleep is a big issue to me and I have been concerned that klonopin has been part of the problem.

While on klonopin I've done many other anti depressant trials many of which caused significant insomnia, but for some reason not with EMSAM so far. I was quite concerned about it, but so far so good.

My doctor wants me to stay on the klonopin, same dose, for a few months while I stabilize on EMSAM, then slowly taper down, perhaps get off it all together. That's what I'm hoping for.

Anyway, hopefully I'll sleep well again tonight. I'll post tomorrow.

Rob
