... needed for years for my anxiety, but it tends to cause depression. What seems to work well is a combination of .5 mg Rivotril with the Celexa in the morning. I felt guilty about this, but realize quality of life is more important. I get councelling also. Will I be able to eventually stop the Rivotril and let the Celexa completely over for the anxiety?
Hi, Empty! Celexa is one of the antidepressants that are very commonly prescribed when anxiety is also a significant problem. As pamee says, it might be difficult to guage your response while you're also taking clonazapam; your doctor might consider having you withdraw from it and that will be a fairly long process. Kicking benzodiazipines can be difficult for some people.
Now what's this about feeling guilty??? You have nothing to feel guilty about!
Best wishes, WCV
