Almost a month on Klonopin but.....

I have to admit that taking Klonopin or it's generic form is doing somewhat of a good job.  I still wake up 1 or 2 a night and when I wake up too early, sometimes I don't even get back to sleep.  or at least I thought I did.  But so far I am glad that it is working.  Now another recent thing that I thought I could handle was stress.  It has gotten to a point that when I get to start working at my job I could feel the stress coming on.  I get a lump in my throat and a pull along the left neck muscle.  I could feel my heart racing.  What gives.  I have to find a way to control this.  I don't like the feeling.  I like my job but it is very stressful when co worker don't do their jobs and I have to pick up after them.  I could get it under control for a while with the magnesium drink that I have and some tapping but that don't last very long, I have to step out for a while before I can start working again.  This stinks.  I still recommend them.  I just hope that this is a side effect of the klonopin so I can have something to blame....

I know what that anxiety feels like. I take many meds, and I don\'t feel it anymore. I think it is a matter of finding what combonation of meds work. I take 25mg of seroquel, usually cut in half, at bed time to sleep. It does the trick. Maybe if your anxiety is that bad, your psych should add some meds.

Maybe. I was hesitant the 1st time around with Xanax, then klonopin. If I can avoid it then I will but it will be as a last resort. The thing I fear most is that what type of state it puts me in if I am driving. Will it impair me? Or other questionable outcome, but I do have your answer in the back of my mind thanks. Hakunamatatah
