Klonopin vs Lyrica vs tegretol

Posted by Deniseuk190466 on April 7, 2007, at 13:09:54


I know I've posted with a lot of questions lately but I'm not sure what to do next and I'm worried.

The lexapro which I've been taking at 10mg for a month (upped it to 20mg for another week) has been helping a bit but I've still been getting this constant anxiety and apathy on it. On Friday, I was feeling suicidally anxious again (all day), although managed to make it through an interview (which I didn't care less if I got the job because I was feeling sooo bad) and made it through the rest of the day at work but then had to take a Zyprexa in the evening because I knew I wasn't going to feel any better the next day.

I have tried adding Tegretol 400mg for a couple of days and it seemed to help with the anxiety but made me very tired (which was preferable to the anxiety really.

One Sunday when I'd been feeling quite anxious all day I thought what the hell and took 1mg of Klonopin. I didn't really notice much of a difference but my mum (without knowing I'd taken the klonopin) said I seemed like my normal self that evening.

Zyprexa helps but I still feel this restlessness after I've taken it.

I've also read that Lyrica is good for anxiety but have never taken it myself.

Has anyone on the board taken all of these drugs and how do they compare?

400mg Tegretol seemed to = less anxiety but very tired and sort of depressed, a bit more motivation.

10mg of Zyprexa = less anxiety but emotional blunting.

Klonopin = not sure, all I know is that I managed to get engrossed in the telly (without feeling restless all the time)and was a bit more chatty.

I would take Klonopin regularly if I thought it would help but then do worry about developing a tolerance.

I wish I could just be my old self again where things came naturally and I didn't have to worry about not feeling right all the time.
