... sleep and my panic attacks are one right after the other please help find me some meds that will help.
I know exactly how you feel. My primary care doctor won't prescribe my Clonazepam anymore. So I had to go to a psychiatric nurse yesterday. The prescribing nurse told me that since I was 69 years old he didn't want to prescribe my usual dose of Clonazepam which is 1 mg times two times daily which I have been taking for the last 6 years. He stated that a 10 year study revealed long term use of benzodiazepines resulted in a group of patients developing dementia. I feel so frustrated because he wanted me to get off the Clonazepam and take instead Risperdal for sleep. He suggested me taking 1/2 mg of the Risperdal and 1/2 mg of the Clonazepam. (I didn't want to go on antidepressants or Gabapentin either.) The nurse did not give me any way to cut down on my Clonazepam. I wish I could tell you something better. If you have time, there are support groups and reviews of how to taper off benzodiazepines. Good luck.
