My psych doc changed my meds again! I have been on WB 75 mg x1 day instant release 4 weeks, he changed it to WB 100 SR 1 x day, been on it 3 weeks. It is still creating lots of anxiety and depression is getting worst. He also added Ativan 1 mg broken into 3 doses, 2 day 1 night. This has only been 1 week and I do not take it every day. I do not like benzos, just not a good idea to have to take a benzo to be on WB. Just saw him yesterday. He changed me to Lexapro 5 mg a day brand name, I cannot take generic, added Klonopin 1mg 1/4 am, 1/4 afternoon, 1/2 for sleep. He said Klonopin is not addictive. WHAT? Do I have the right to not take the Klonopin? I see him in two weeks or sooner. This the 3rd time in 6 weeks he has changed my meds. Need some advise, opinions, feedback please!
Lexapro added to my Wellbutrin?

Klonopin taken regularly will make you dependent. Breaking up the klonopin is not needed. Klonopin has a half life of 18-50 hours. So you can take it once a day. My psych Dr took me off klonopin because of my age (over 50). He put me on Buspar which works great for anxiety, it just doesn't have the sleep side effect of klonopin.
My meds are Lexapro - Wellbutrin - Buspar.
I was put on lexapro 10 mg and wellbutrin xl 150 mg. I use to take paxil 20 mg I weaned down to 10 mg then my paxil just stopped working. I was told to take both lexapro and wellbutrin in the morning together. But read it might be better to take wellbutrin in the morning and lexapro at night.
Klonopin taken regularly will cause dependence but most psych meds do, yes you have the right not to take it unless its court ordered. Why does he keep changing them? I'd split the IR and take smaller amount twice
