I was on 10 mg of lexapro for about a year While taking two 0.5 mg (morning and evening) klonopin daily. Recently my new physiatrist advised to begin tapering off the klonopin. I'm down to .25 in am and .25 in evening. And upping the lexapro to 20mg. It seems to began working but I do feel tired. It has been 8 days since upping dose And I usually try to hold off on the klonopin till afternoon or evening. I was wondering if the tiredness will dissappear over time or hoe to combat the tiredNess as I am allergic to shellfiSh. Please advise.
I agree with LaurieShay. Eight days isn't very long to adapt and it could easily take more time. You are on fairly low doses of both medicines, which is great. Holding off on the klonopin until later in your day is a good idea. I do not recommend you drink caffeine, eat chocolate or take any stimulant to get through the tired phase. It may seem appealing but can cause anxiety to occur. Read food labels if you must to avoid stimulants so your decrease in klonopin goes smoothly.
