I have had the plan in mind to begin to taper off off 2-2.5 mg Teva USA(manufacturer) Clonazepam daily beginning this summer. I have been taking generic barr adderall (mixed amphetamine salts) 20mg b.i.d. for a while and XR before that. I have been on Adderall for around a year, only stopping to give Nardil a spin after at least 7 SSRI's and wellbublah blah did not have any positive effect. I have been on clonazepam daily for over a year, and it can be noted I have been looking for a drug to work before I taper. But, the road has been hard and I want to begin the slow taper now. Keep in mind the manufacturer! Now, what would be the best method of tapering? I want it to be very accurate, and the water titration method sounds accurate (I have not looked much into it.) I doubt teva's clonaepam green tablets are freely soluble in water....any thought? Methods...Solubility...Remedies to make it through in which one has experienced (they are endless, but they're not like Methadone or Suboxone is to Opiates obviously)?
Psychology is such a new science (and in some fields corrupt) that one can nearly guarantee different diagnoses from different pdocs. That has been my case. Right now, my questionable yet renowned Psychologist says its Social Anxiety Disorder. Although I have somewhat abnormal thinking now, I will admit, it is not the maladaptive described in the booklet. I am working on that though. But more importantly, none of my symptoms (which are primary and disabling) are outlined. They just go under parathesias...The muscles feel weird, more than just muscle movements, in my head. Just strange, indecribable, physical sensations. But one thing I would like all you to keep in mind is...
I AM THE SKETCHY KID
In society, symptoms and signs grant me this name. And Psychologists try to compare it to "timid." I don't know if it depends where in the US you are from, but you might know what it means. Please help, this dysthymia wont stop sliding downwards and my cognitive abilities suffer TREMENDOUSLY. That is actually kind of debilitating in itself as say in court I see a contradiction in what someone says and forget about it, or what they said, seconds later. Either as I follow along, or just zone out.
