I have been on Klonopin for 16 yrs and developed a tolerance is Xanax a viable alternative?

I have been on Clonazepam for 16 years for anxiety, and it seems like I have developed a tolerance to it (Shocking after just 16 years, I know... ) Ativan was an unpleasant replacement.

Cane you build up a tolerance to Seroquel?

Sorry if this is a repeat question. I have been on 200mg Seroquel for 3 years for BP. (Plus the classic Lithium, Epitec).

I just changed my Zoloft dosage and feeling anxious does a 25 mg increase make this happen?

I have been on Zoloft for 5+ years. I started to feel like it was not working. Not sure if it was the dark long winter days or just that I built up a tolerance.

Adderall not working?

I've been on Adderall over a year. Though I know I've grown a tolerance to it, it has never just stopped working completely. It hasn't worked for the past 4 days. I tried taking vitamins and tums before dosing and that didn't help either. Does anyone know what could be causing... read more

Does tolerance to Ambien ever leave?

I have been using Ambien for five years now and I have noticed I have to increase the dosage to get the same effect. Is there any way to get rid of this tolerance at all? I mean if you stop taking it for while, will be effective again at a lower dose?
