If at some point the patient or doctor recognizes that things are escalating to 2-3/month or 3-4/month...even though these are still below what would be considered CHRONIC patterns of dependency it should be clear that something is changing that needs to be dealt with...otherwise, long term use @ 1-2x/month is fine.

Do you have panic attacks, crying spells, low energy, etc. I'm not saying its all psychiatric just don't use resources seeking perfect horm. ...Read more

I'm a 29y/o woman diagnosis with ADHD and anxiety. I was prescribed 10mg of fluoxetine, 25mg of hydroxyzine and 0.2mg of clonidine at bedtime. Is that safe?

I'm a 29y/o woman diagnosis with ADHD and anxiety. I was prescribed 10mg of fluoxetine, 25mg of hydroxyzine and 0.2mg of clonidine at bedtime. Is that safe?

Taking Adderall (as indicated) with these has some risks of adverse interactions, thus close monitoring for potential adverse effects is indicated. ...Read more
