Been taking. 25 of klonopin (clonazepam) m&n and 5mg celexa. Is it safe to stop the am klonopoin and the celexa and just take the pm dose of klonopin (clonazepam)?

Been taking. 25 of klonopin (clonazepam) m&n and 5mg celexa. Is it safe to stop the am klonopoin and the celexa and just take the pm dose of klonopin (clonazepam)?

Overall thought safe: Cynthia, Those are low doses of klonopin (clonazepam) and celexa. I would always recommend conferring with your treating provider before making such changes, but on a general level, I do not think that you would experience difficult stopping celexa from the 5mg dose. I would not have a safety concern for stopping the 0.25mg morning dose of klonopin (clonazepam). Long 1/2 life should make this easier to adjust to. ...Read more

Can i take both clonopin and xanax (alprazolam)?

Why?: I am not sure why you would need to take two different benzodiazapines at the same time. Both have potential to build tolerance.

I'm 25 weeks pregnant and my OB prescribed Vistaril for anxiety and insomnia. Is this widely considered safe during pregnancy?

Best discuss concern: with your OB who must weigh benefits and risks for you and your baby of any medication prescribed during pregnancy. Antihistamines are contraindicated in the first trimester and risk beyond that is uncertain. If necessary Vistaril is considered a good choice and it is recommended to drink ample water to overcome possible side effects. Alert OB to increased movement. Best regards for good health. ...Read more
