I've been taking klonopin 1 mg 3 times a day also 20 mg of saphris and 30 mg of restoril which is also a benzine like klopin now they added 50mg of pristiq and 25 mg of amitripyline and clonidine also to me that's alot but doctor and pharmacy said it is fine any thaughts would be greafully appreciated... tx all and also 45 mg of buspar which i only take once and while
First of all, buspar does not work if you don't take it regularly. Klonopin is a benzodiazepam. Restoril is taken at night, along with the amitriptyline. You are on very low doses so its not bad if youre on all of them. Pharmacists know what would be dangerous and would tell you if it was.
I have been taking Buspar over 20 years for GAD. On for 3 yrs then off three years, relapsed and went back on for 4 years and then off 4 years, then relapsed again. Have now been on for 6 years and supposed to stay on a maintenance dose 5mg 3 x a day. I have just had a new crisis and had .25mg of clonazapam added in am only to help. You do need to take Buspar every day to get it to build up in your system. It is for anxiety, but in larger doses it also works as an antidepressant or if long term it helps depression too. If you don't take it everyday, then perhaps if you tell your doctor they might have you drop that one as I don't see how it could be helping?
