Gaining Strength, To Lead a "Normal Life"
I am trying to gain strength, to cope with my anxiety/panic attacks. Have recently been prescribed "LORAZEPAM" 1mg. And taking one day at a time, in the hope that this med will help me. I had been taking TRANXENE 15mg, for 20yrs, which worked" BRILLIANT" for my Anxiety/Panic Attacks, Then i had a big shock, when Tranxene med was discontinued.Being on it for 20yrs, i suffered all the withdrawal symptoms, (which were awfull) 4 Months down the line, the med is slowly comming out of my system. But my Anxiety/Panic Attacks have returned with avengance. I did a google search for a relacement medication, & came across alot of good reviews for KLONOPIN, which people were taking for Anxiety/Panic Attacks.Paid a visit to my Doctor, in the hope he would prescribe KLONOPIN for my attacks, but to no avail, he refused & said Klonopin was used to prevent "FITS". He then prescribed me, "LORAZEPAM 1 mg" x 2 Tabs Daily if needed. On reading the med leaflet, it also states can be used for "fits" & my previous Tranxene med, could also be used to treat "fits". Dont think my Doctor liked the fact, that i had searched the internet, & then asked him for Klonopin. Does anyone else have problems trying to get help from their Doctor?
