Is taking 10 mg vicodan 3 x day.klonopin at nite to sleep. Hydroxyzine for interstitial cystitis. Imitrex for migraines too much? I have fibromyalgia
Impossible to say: If the 30 mg of hydrocodone a day is for fibromyalgia, then I would say its too much of the wrong drug. If it is for the hip fracture, and you are within a few weeks of the injury, it may be appropriate. Fibromyalgia is best treated with appropriate exercise and the use of both antidepressants and anticonvulsants. You aren't on anything to prevent migraine. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more
What is considered a dangerous amount of clonazepam I take 2mg a day but I seen people on 8 mg a day?
Any amount: can be dangerous if not taken as prescribed. You do not want to combine CNS depressants (like alcohol and Klonopin) and you don't want to abruptly discontinue chloride channel drugs (benzodiazepines and barbiturates) With larger doses of Klonopin you can see increased risk of withdrawal seizures, respiratory depression and cognitive impairment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I took my last .125 dose of clonazepam on monday night. How long before its out of my system? Having some really bad withdraw.
1/2 life is 3 days: The dose that you write for Clonazepam is unclear . A typical starting dose is 0.5mg (4 times the dose you write). The higher the dose and the longer that you have been on it, the more difficult the withdrawal. It is advisable that you decrease the dose in small increments instead of stopping it suddenly. If you were truly only on 0.125mg your withdrawal symptoms should me minimal. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Having clonazepam tablets for anixety since 7years, had started with upto 4mg total per day, now reduced it to 0.50mg at bedtime, I want to leave it c?
Work with doctor: Wow, you have really come a long way in reducing your clonazepam. This can be challenging to do, so i'm glad for you! you would need to decrease it very, very gradually with the help of your doctor. Probably no more than 10% every few weeks depending on your response, because it's so potent. You may need to get the last tapering increments through a compounding pharmacy; your doctor can help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Dear sir, what is difference between clonazepam and fluoxetin infact. That's why because both of them has the same action.
Medications: Fluoxetine is an ssri antidepressant, and Clonazepam is a benzodiazepine anxiolytic agent. They do not have the same action. However, Clonazepam may cause sedation. Fluoxetine usually does not cause this side effect and in some people, can be activating. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Agree w Dr Duriez: I agree w dr duriez, alcohol, opiates. Also pot, other street drugs. If the Clonazepam was prescribed 4 anxiety w/out any referral 4 psychotherapy, it'a easy to get overly dependent on the medication, leading to taking it more + more. After a while it will be less + less effective. Cognitive behavioral therapy 4 anxiety is effective, especially (for some types of anxiety) exposure based therapy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Most people use 1 mg as a sleep aid if they have insomnia due to anxiety, and 0.5 mg for "day time anxiety." it is an as needed medication with addictive potential. Do not mix it with alcohol. Use it sparingly. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I'd like to know why i can take a whole box (90 pills) of 2mg clonazepam and not feel a single thing, no effects at all. Please do not question my motives or try to lecture me re safety. Legit pills.
Drug Addiction: No lecture or judgement here. It means that you are an addict. It is most likely that doses that would kill anyone else have no effect on you because you have either taken them for too long or have built up a tolerance for them or alcohol (clonazepam is thought to be the pill version of alcohol). If you are using high doses of this medicine it may be wise to get help as you detox off of them. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
