my/ therpist's new strategy

all,

i had posted earlier that i was going to immediately start lowering my klonopin by 1 mg. per week - hoping to finally get totally off it, as i was just last year at this same time - although for only one month. you may recall i'm on emsam much more for major depressive illness, than for any anxiety help.

even before my therapist called me back last night, i realized this was just not realistic. i also realized that i needed to:

1) stop comparing my emsam start-up with anyone's else's.

2) be much more patient.

3) not go one bit lower on the klonopin for now.

4) give the ensam ample time, longer than the "up to 2 weeks to work," (cited on my pharmacy read-out).

(*i do still believe it's going to give me full remission of my MDD.)

therefore, i may well be more scarce around here for awhile.

many thanks to everyone who has helped me on this thread with their excellent info, and good luck to all on emsam.
