Would like to Get off SSRIs

Ok, now my question as I've been reading some archives on klonopin. Do any of you have any thoughts on stopping zoloft and just taking klonopin twice a day?  I believe this would solve my sexual isues and make me sane again. I do, however, have another issue with doing that - I take vicodin for a disc protrusion that is compressing my spinal cord (need surgery, but that's for another forum!). Does anyone know if it would be safe to take vicodin and klonopin together? I feel this would really solve my anxiety/depression issues once and for all while allowing my old self to return, whom I have missed very much! Sorry this is sooooo long, but I really need some help. Thank you in advance for any support you can offer.

performance anxiety issues!!

Your daughter definitely has performance anxiety which I can completely relate to.  I am 55 years old and experienced those exact feelings when I was her age.  My younger daughter who is 26 now has experienced these symptoms too.  Where as your daughter is a distance runner, my daughter was a performer at a very young age.  Exams of any type were difficult for both of us.  The reason your daughter feels the pressure in her gut is the same reason she throws up before running.  She has anxiety.  At that age, it is such a tough call putting her on medication and I understand your situation more than you could ever know.  Just admitting that she has this problem for all of you is extremely difficult...BUT, If she were my daughter, I would be trying other methods to take her mind off the anticipation of the race.  My daughter used to listen to an IPod before performing, you see lots of athletes doing this before games. We used to distract her when she was a little girl of 8 with playing board games before going on.  Some people chew gum and that helps with the stress.  Try any kind of CBT you can...relaxation tapes, yoga, sea sickness bands...  It's funny, the throwing up used to make me and for that matter, my daughter feel better and we could, in my daughter's case perform better and in my case, run like the wind.  There is another option, I know that often doctors prescribe a beta blocker for those people with performance anxiety or depending on the case, a benzo, but a short acting one that they would only use before an exam just to calm her down.  The short acting benzos like lorazepam are to be used ONLY occasionally for special situations like this.  I'm not sure it would be a great idea before a race because it might slow her down, but if it were taken earlier in the day of the race, it might not be a problem.  That is another consideration that you might discuss with your doctor.  I really feel for your situation but please know that my daughter had a career in dance, went on to university, and now is successful in a career in marketing...all her own decisions.  Use incentives for your daughter.  My daughter said that it really helped her even as a teenager, that if we gave her incentives especially regarding exams, she was more inclined to focus on the incentive rather than on throwing up.  It's got to be something she really wants, mind you, or it won't work. I am really interested in how this plays out.  Please keep me informed as to what you decide to do. I'm going to add your name to my friends list.

Quitting Zoloft and klonopin

It would be very odd to build tolerance in only 3 weeks, especially with klonopin.  And if that's all you've been on these, it shouldn't be that hard to stop.  The Zoloft probably hasn't even begun to work yet, as it often takes 4-6 weeks for anti-depressants to work.  I'd taper just to be safe, but you just haven't been on anything long enough to worry too much about it.

Zoloft amd klonopin withdrawal

I agree that zoloft can cause panic attacks, as a matter of fact every anti-depressant I've ever took caused me to have panic attacks. klonopin is a benzo and one should never suddenly stop taking them, You can have seizures if your addicted to them and stop taking them all at once. What you need to do is start cutting down on them slowly. If you can live without taking them, than don't stay on them. Once you are addicted to them it is so hard to get off of them. They are for bi-polar patients but they are for alot of other uses to. They will help your anxiety. They are a slower acting pill than say a xanax and people are less likely to abuse them than a xanax but they are addictive just as any "nerve pill" is! My doctor told me they are stronger than any other nerve pill. He said they just enter the body slower but they stay in longer, I don't know if he is right or not but that is what he told me. Anyway, I have been on nerve pills since my 20's and i'm 43 so i'm addicted and I hate it, I wish I had known how addictive they were and how sick you get when you try to stop taking them. As a matter of fact, long term use can cause damage to the brain which mimic's the symtoms of bi-polar disorder. or so I've read!! At 40 I was told I was bi-polar..I'm now told I can never stop taking them. When they tryed 3 years ago, I was so sick I was hospitalized, lost 60 lbs. threw up all the time and was sick for months. They took me off valium only to put me on the klonopin. I could go on and on because it was the worst experience of my life trying to get off of them. However, they are great for short term use only, unless of course you have a condition which requires you to always take them as i now have from taking them for so many years!! Yes see a specilist, I finally did, just wished I had 20 years ago!!

Zoloft Issues and Klonopon

I am sorry that you are dealing with this right now.  Whenever I started, stopped or adjusted dosage of an SSRI like Zoloft my anxiety and side effects increased.  I felt a lot more on edge (which was probably due to my worry and some actual effects of the medication).  In my experience, the side effects leveled off within a couple of weeks of starting Zoloft.  Quite often a doctor will prescribe a benzo to help with this until you get up to the prescribed dosage of the SSRI.  After a couple of weeks, I really started to see the benefits of taking it, however, all meds can affect us in different ways.

hi, so sorry your going threw this, you need to breathe and try and relax. yes there are so many of us and we are all in same boat. your heart beat gets high because its like your scared and sending messages for it to run, which throws your bp up to.  been dealing with this since i was 19 now 52 still here nothing has killed me yet that has to do with anxiety. you need a good support person to lean on. i have my hubby its made all the difference for me, hes my rock i can talk to him and i always feel better. the pills take a while to get in your body. i also took klonopin and its a great med you need to let it work. .o5 is very little and dont be scared to take it my mom takes 1 1/2 three times a day some times 2 at a time.  i took the .05 twice a day and was only o it two months , it helped me to get on my feet than i took myself off slowly. pills will not take it away, you will still have it some they just make it better for you , but having someone there anytime yo feel scared/like your dying will help alot. if you have had all test ran and dr says your fine. try and belive that and live your life, donrt get house bound like i did its so hard to get back out but i did it and am living pill free and enjoying life . yes i still get anxiety i have had a lieryday for the last two weeks , but i get up and do what i need to do i will not let it take me down again.
