HELP- antianxiety options with least cognitive imp

Posted by hok on January 24, 2008, at 19:51:14

Hi guys,

I need your help. I've recently taken on a stressful job and I'm having a lot of trouble with anxiety that's causing me only a further inability to concentrate and focus on work responsibilities.

In the past couple weeks, I have experimented with a low dose of .25 mg of klonopin, and although it helps, even this small dose effects my memory and cognitive functioning. I would like to take even more, since some of the anxiety is still outstanding, but the fact that this will only further hamper my inability to perform my job prevents me from doing so.

In the past, I did great on a low dose (25-50mg) of Serzone (Nefazodone). But once again, memory impairment was a problem. It seems I am quite med-sensitive

As for the SSRIs/SNRIs, I currently take a low dose of Cymbalta and have tried the majority of them in the past. Although they help my mood, I've never really found any relief from them for anxiety.

I need some help trying to figure out some options that would be a good anti-anxiety agent with the least impact on cognition/memory. I was thinking of trying a very low dose of an anti-psychotic, but it seems there isn't a clear consensus on which one is the least mentally impairing (especially in regards to memory).

Please help, I'm getting somewhat desperate at this point.
