anxiety and insomnia and leaving me with nothing will make me house bound. She thinks one of the anti-depressants with sedating effects will work. I have tried them all and am not even currently depressed. If anyone has any suggestions please throw out anything you might know about. I also lost my fiance 2 months ago and was seriously assaulted in April and am having alot of PTSD symptoms. Please help!
I am so very sorry about your situation! Your doc sounds a bit heartless. Are you supposed to stop Xanax cold turkey? If so, that is dangerous, it can cause seizures.
Can you make an appointment with a psychiatrist? Perhaps a psyc doc will prescribe benzos for you.
I wish you the best. Please keep us posted on your condition. We care.
make sure you tell your doctor that she must take you off this medication slowly.ask her/him to perscrib a longer acting benzo like klonipin and say your situation right now is causing you nightmares and you wake up from them and have the shakes and its almost impossible for you to go back to sleep. and if she refuses to wean you down say you feel strongly enough to change doctors.say you want it in writing in case you have a seizure that she stopped your benzos without a proper detox from them.
Gooch44... Get to the hospital. My dr took me off because I needed a refill too soon. I thought I could handle a few days till I got a new psych dr to give them to me. I started hallucinating, shaking, not sure where I was, shaking, slurring my words. This went on for 4 days and was getting worse. Afterwards I found out I was having SEIZURES... When I went to the hospital I didn't tell them the truth because I was afraid they wouldn't put me back on. I just told them I started feeling anxious and shaking. Seeing the condition I was in the put me on xanax again, kept me overnight and sent me home with a script till I could see a dr. I suffered withdrawal from opioids before but this is SERIOUS
I just saw your question because I just got on subutex yesterday and I am looking for some info. Go Goofy get help, you can't do this one yourself. Good Luck and God Bless
