I suffer from anxiety. My left bicep has been twitching consistently for several days now. Can anxiety symptoms last this long? CT last year was clear
Definitely : Anxiety-related muscle twitches and spasms can sometimes last for weeks. Since it sounds like you had a full medical work up with no problems found, there is probably nothing to worry about. To minimize the symptom, make sure you're getting enough sodium, potassium, and calcium, and also take 15 minutes time out a few times a day to just focus on breathing softly and relaxing your muscles. ...Read more

Will halcion (triazolam) work for insomnia if I have already been on klonopin .5 mg for several years for anxiety?
Different : Both medications are in the same class but otherwise are very different. Halcyon works very fast but gets out just as fast. As a result it is good at getting people to sleep but not at keeping them. If you are used to klonapin then you will likely wake up in middle of night feeling anxious. Also the sudden changes can lead to confusion. 0.5 is small dose so it might not be a big problem. ...Read more
Developed insomnia several yrs ago for several weeks stress at work, tried half recommended dose of somenx got really dizzy and scared what happened?
Sominex: I think you may mean "sominex" rather than "somenx." it is an antihistamine which can make you sleepy, which is why they use that name. Antihistamines can also bring other side effects including confusion, dry mouth, and dizziness, etc. You are apparently quite sensitive to these effects. If you've had several years of insomnia, it's time to consult with a sleep medicine physician. ...Read more

Self medicating: You were apparently self medicating with the mj. You can see a dr. And tell them your history, get an evaluation, and they may be able to rx a medication to help you with your underlying anxiety, where you would not need the mj, and may eventually be weaned off the medications if at all possible. Best wishes. ...Read more
I've been on clonazepam for several years at 0.25 mg fr several years for anxiety. I'm ready to wean off. How can this be done?
On celexa (citalopram) 40mg for a few months & klonopon .5 two times a day for a month. I stopped taking my meds for almost week, how long will withdraw last.
Not sure.: I am not sure you are having symptoms of withdrawal. Were you prescribed these medications for depression and anxiety? If you were, some of the symptoms you are experiencing now be a recurrence of your symptoms and they can actually feel worse than before you started. Do see your doctor to make sure you're not having other problems. ...Read more
