I am a 23 year old female and have been depressed for the last 2 years, my depression has caused severe mood swings as well. I also have very bad anxiety since about the age of 8. I have had a problem with alcohol since about 19 years old. My doctor perscriped me the wellbutrin and told me to take the Klonopin at night to help the anxiety. Well I told him i drink everynight and he said to stop drinking and take the medication. I read the reviews and they say that if you are quiting alcohol then it's not good to take because it increases the chance of a seazure, it also says not to drink when you take it. Are these mild side affects? I'm not sure what to do?
benzos can actually stop you from having seziures if your an alcoholic and you suddently stop... however if you take the med and drink you have a higher chance of dying... i cant believe your doc would give you a benzo while knowing your addicted to alcohol... thats a very dome thing to do. If you can give us a reason as to why you drink it may be beneficial. some drink because of anxiety and klonopin would be a way to stop drinking hopefully ( dont keep alcohol in your house or mouthwash)
