I am also currently taking Ciprolex 10 mgm BID and Clonazepam 5 mgm TID pen. Is there an interaction with these meds and Disulfiram?
There are no severe interactions between your medications.
"clonazepam+ Alcohol - Moderate
clonazepam+ disulfiram - Moderate
Celexa+ Grapefruit juice - Moderate
Celexa+ Alcohol - Minor
clonazepam+ Caffeine-containing Foods/Beverages - Minor"
Cipralax is another brand name for citalopram, which is why it says "Celexa" up there instead of Cipralax.
Perhaps your Clonazepam dose isn't high enough? Or maybe you need to add a low-moderate dose of Xanax so you can stop the panic attacks when they come on (putting one under your tongue makes them work within 15 minutes, though I'll warn you that the taste is rather bitter). Lorazepam is another choice for stopping the panic attacks (again I'd advise putting the pill under your tongue... at least Lorazepam tastes sweet). Xanax is much stronger than Lorazepam, so it all depends on what your doctor is willing to prescribe. There are also Klonopin wafers on the market, and they're supposed to work more quickly than regular Clonazepam).
You could also just try taking your Clonazepam under your tongue too (tends to have a minty taste) - all drugs taken sublingually go straight to the blood stream and into the brain faster than if taken orally, where they have to be digested and processed by the stomach, intestines, and liver first).
In any case, please go back to your doctor and ask advice. You shouldn't have to suffer through the panic attacks. I get them too and I wouldn't wish them on my worst enemy.
