recovered on nardil and mood stabilizers, now am experiencing the same horrible anxiety after all this time. My dr. put me on 1 to 2 mg of clonazepam a day and though I am not perfect I am much better. I hear and read so many bad things about benzos, their efficacy , the side effects etc., but it has helped me alot. Am I dumb for taking these the last 3 weeks? and is it possible to use them short term and have a successful recovery. I am hoping someone has taken this route and recovered, otherwise I feel as though I am just heading down the wrong road.
