I have been on clonazepam for 3yrs now, combined with abilify and Zoloft, to help with anxiety, panic disorder and depression. I was happy with what I was taking. Unfortunately, my sweet sweet dr passed away. I am now with a new dr who seems to believe that I do not need the clonazepam. She has changed all of my medications including what I take and the dose. I went from having 3 AS NEEDED, 1mg tablets of clonazepam to .5 1-2x daily. My body went through withdrawals and the anxiety became worse. Of course I always used to have quite a bit left over with my old doctor but I always run out with my new doctor. She simply makes me feel like I'm an abuser and take advantage however I've been dealing with these issues since 2001, shortly after my brother and fathers passing. How can I stick to my old medications and where can I find them if she won't help me?
Find a new Dr ASAP, I believe its a power trip to tell you that something you've been taking for years and has helped you that you can't have it anymore and even if they want to get you off of it thats too big of jumps in lowering the dosage. I can't answer your question here but I'll just say its possible given the schedule 3 level its on fairly easy but the best thing is to tell your new Dr its not working and you want your previous meds and if she is so narcissistic she dismisses you find another Dr preferably an older one
