I had just met this psychiatric nurse, after one consultation 30+ minutes. And just a week and half earlier I had suicidal thoughts. I went into the appointment and wanted to sound knowledgeable .... But really I'm so confused and depressed and anxious and having panic feelings. I was taking 10 mg buspar and 7.5 mirtazapine from another practitioner in her office. In addition to the no refill 60 tabs of 1 mg clonazapam, she also prescribed Effexor -- low dose. I'm hesitant to start the Effexor too, I don't know what's wrong with me, but I'm overwhelmed. My regular doctor suggested I see a psychiatrist, and the only people on my insurance plan are these two nurse practitioners and a psychiatrist who I couldn't get in to see for weeks so I went to see these nurse practitioners with speciality in psychiatry.
If you're taking it twice a day you need 60 for a month. What about the meds you were on.. You weren't on enough Buspar. I would have just increased the doses of what you are on rather then try something totally different. The mirtazepine wasn't enough to for a goldfish, lolol
