Glad the ativan is working, and that makes sense as it's shorter-acting than klonopin.
How are you doing with the emsam now?
Lol, I switched to Parnate the day after I posted that. The emsam was good, the thing about it that I didn't like was the l-amphetamine metabolite. I was on adderall (3/4 d-amp and 1/4 l-amp) for about half a year, and each day on the emsam was bringing back bad memories. Dexedrine and Vyvanse (pure d-amp) were so much better for me.. I knew I would never be satisfied being on l-amp so I decided to just move on... and bequeathed my personal stash of white cheddar popcorn and pirate booty to my little sisters and made them the rest of the Annie's for lunch :-/
But hey, cheddar or happiness and sociability? No-brainer for me. So glad I can at least have mozzarella!
Today is day 4 on parnate.
So why aren't you taking parnate anymore, and why emsam instead?
