No the pain Dr's said any of that class. I can take antidepressants. Not depressed. My reg Dr said go off the librium slowly and start the new one as I quit the old. It's not the "will be addicted" problem. It's a class, even my pain Dr said he had no issue with it. The other Dr's out ranked him. He's had his own practice for years and just didn't want me on calonipin.
He joined a group of Dr's.
So he's low on the totem pole so to speak! Now I'm struggling to live with severe pain for yrs, and waking up going to bed hurting like hell. In bed mostly. Then the anxiety from it I've struggled with, along with social anxiety, ocd, and panic attacks! I'm Being punished for the Abuse of drugs that others are doing!
And the drug enforcement isn't helping hurting the good Dr's along with the bad! They are afraid to prescribe! Trust me when I say Xanax are horrible for you! They are extremely addictive.
The withdrawl can range fro rashes, to hair loss, to even more severe symptoms. I KNOW this because my husband was on both pain management and xanax. He wnded up in the hospital and has not been the same since. Mentally, emotionally, or physically. It is not worth the risk! There are other medications that work just as well. Yes, some of thoae are addictive as well, but the withdrawl is not as complicated or severe.
Please consult your physician for better options!
Exactly the same thing, I was at a happy medium ,then my pain dr. Took me off xanax, now I can't sleep and I'm a nervous wreck don't even want to leave my house. Its a different world out there now. My fiance is currently serving 25 yrs on a 35 yr sentence. He was a heroin addict for a long time. At 8 yrs old he was taken into state custody because his parents couldn't control him. Other drugs began at this age. Many tramatic things happened to him as a child and continued on to adulthood.
He turned to heroin and then accidently took a life. I believe he has devoloped PTSD from many places in his life; prison itself being one.
He had succeeded in taking himself off of Klonopin, but he slowly returned to almost a hermit and is not taking care of himself and has no energy or drive. He used to lift weights all the time, but he was taking 4 mg of Klonopin. He is now contemplating going back on his Klonopin. He says the other class of meds mentioned above do not help. Is there a reason that these meds would not work for him? Does it have anything to do with the kind of drugs he used before? Can someone need to be on Klonopin for their whole adult life?
Is that safe? Thank you for your time! It is four years, I have been taking medicine, until now, I have used diffetent kinds of medicine, but still I am suffering I really dont know what to do While walking, eating and being jobless, I think I will have brain attack, I mean somethi ng will happen with my brain Jose Orona from Montclair Ca. Severe Anxiety has destroyed my life- the obly relief i recieved was from xanax. I was put on other meds that never worked- and being homeless and unemployed- the state clinic would not prescribe what I need.
I am dying from two different issues and my only family member left is also dying.
The disability route for me was rejected. I am to the point of I've been stressed a lot and started back on my hydroxigen bit its not working to well. And my nerves are bad. I feel anxious. Can't sleep without sleeping pills. How can I make myself feel better and sleep better? I have had anxiety for a while now. I stopped driving because of it. And have tried every antidepressant. But my life took a terrible devastating turn on may 17 when I lost my only son in a motorcycle accident.
I have lost 50 lbs. Cry all the time. These horrible thoughts that I replay in my mind over And over. No sleep.
I'm a mess. Can anyone recommend someone to help? I have fear of heights and going up is there any medication I can take to calm myself down.
I found an interesting report on the web. I have taken xanax for anxiety and panic attacks for 25 years. Mya doc could not give me xanax anymore it worked fine took the edge off so I could function some what without attacks. Went to A mental health center for help what a mistake. It seemed there only interest was getting me off xanax not addressing my anxiety problems. They took a decent function person and made me a hateful being. I thought Docs were here to help and cure not torture I was wrong.
Found good article on web for benzos read it you will learn alot its called the Ashton report good luck all hope to be around to see all Docs be held responsible for all our torture!!!!!!!
