Anxiety And Klonopin
Clonazepam: Not for daily use. Absolutely not. This is setting you up for a lifetime of being medicated. Neither of these drugs are curing a problem. The underlying problem needs to be solved. ...Read more

Severe panic in with Agoraphobia and GAD and health anxiety. I take high dose Xanax XR and Zoloft. Weaning from Zoloft to Prozac having extreme anxiet?
Add therapy: Certainly the medication may be adjusted as there are various choices in a situation and some people may respond better to one medication as compared to another. Therapy should probably be added to the treatment mix as there are various techniques that may be helpful in reducing your symptoms. ...Read more
Possibly: Citalopram and Buspirone are both described as being effective for anxiety. The magnitude of the difference between their effects is likely small if studied formally in a research setting although my experience with both is that i would predict someone would experience more comprehensive reduction in the severity of their anxiety and panic attacks in the context of citalopram treatment. ...Read more
Hi, I am taking celexa 20 mg for depression and anxiety and klonopin (clonazepam) for anxiety and panic. Could I replace the klonopin (clonazepam) with amitriptyline safely?
Not enough info: Switching medications requires knowledge of your entire clinical situation. You need to discuss with prescribing doctor reason for changing any med and how to do so. Also you must be seen and carefully monitored for symptoms and side effects. I hope this helps. ...Read more
Im on Zoloft and Buspar (buspirone) and Risperdal for deeprassnt can Risperdal bi replace to remeron? For insomnia and anxiety and deeprassnt? ??
Different rationale.: The Buspar (buspirone) is often used for anxiety but it may take time for it to work. Zoloft is an antidepressant of the SSRI class , Risperdal is an antipsychotic but is used in small doses for severe anxiety. Remeron is an atypical antidepressant and is used more to stimulate appetite or improve your sleep. Please discuss this with your doctor. He has specific reasons for the use of each drug. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Ativan (lorazepam) can help with: Panic attacks. However, i encourage my patients to learn non-medication ways to handle panic and anxiety. Here is one simple tip: breath in slowly ; deeply through your nostrils. Fill your lungs with air (but not to the point of discomfort). Hold for a count of five then slowly begin to exhale through an open mouth. Repeat at least 12 times, longer if you need to. ...Read more
No.: Buspar (buspirone) and Klonopin are from two different classes of drugs. Buspar (buspirone) is not a benzodiazepine and does not cause tolerance or withdrawal. Klonopin is a benzodiazepine and does cause tolerance and withdrawal. Symptoms of withdrawal from Klonopin like increased anxiety, tremor, seizures, and possible death if severe would not be helped by buspar (buspirone). If taper off of Klonopin needed, use like medication. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Anx yes, panic no: Atarax (hydroxyzine) is an antihistamine, and like others in this category, has a calming and sedating effect, usually mild in the usual doses given. Thus, it is a safe and non-addictive option to treat anxiety. Panic attacks are a different thing: sudden, intense, often not triggered by anything obvious. Atarax probably won't help with panic. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Both: Citalopram & mirtazepine target symptoms of anxiety including panic attacks. The results of an open label study in panic disorder (2001) suggest that Mirtazapine seems to be a fast & effective treatment alternative for ssris in panic disorder. A placebo-controlled study (1997) demonstrated efficacy of citalopram in reducing panic attacks. Both meds have been associated with panic attacks during tx. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Depression: Both of these medications work on neurotransmitters that are active in controlling brain activity as well as mood. The area of the brain responsible for our emotional state is often times responsive to both of these medications. Unfortunately only about 50% of people treated for depression will respond to medication. Get enough sleep and exercise as well. ...Read more
I suffer from anxiety and depresion. Can i take Zoloft and pristiq (desvenlafaxine) along with xanax..
I'm old fashioned: I have a feeling that more and more people are self diagnosing and selecting the drugs the want to take. I'm almost always against this idea. Helping your doctor make these decisions is fine - even important - but i think it should be their responsibility. Please discuss this with the doctor and work together. ...Read more
