I've just been diagnosed with BiPolar, 2 months ago but have suspected it for years and wasn't allowed to see a pdoc and was given every AD and lots of Valium. I had been taking Buspar for 9 months to treat anxiety and they just kept increasing the dosage and I still had breakthrough anxiety. When I finally saw a Psychiatrist, he took be off Buspar completely and put me on Clonazepam to treat the anxiety. They are .5 mg and the directions said 3 a day. So I was taking one at 7am, one at around noon and one at bedtime. I figured out that I was tending to me more anxious around time to go home from work/dinner time. Then I remember the doctor explaining about the short half life. So, should I actually be taking these every 4-5 hours, but only three a day. Part of the way I figured it out was that I was at work freaking out and I went ahead and took my bedtime pill (at 4:00) and by the time I got home I was feeling better. Does this make sense or is it unrelated. I'm having a hard time judging all the new meds cause at the same time my personal life has been completely turned upside down.
