I was wondering of anyone has had a bad experience switching drugs?
I was taking .5 mg's of ativan 4 times a day but I was having break through anxiety during the night. My doctor has switched me to taking .5 mg's of clonazepam 3 times a day and I am feeling strange and exhausted. I think he is giving me too much. I looked it up and .5 mg's of Clonazepam is equal to 2 mg's of ativan. Is there a chance I could OD?
I am so afraid that I will withdrawal from the ativan also. Could I go through withdrawal or will the clonazepam take care of those symptoms?
The half life of clonazepam is twice as long as the ativan also, does this mean I should wait that long to take the next dose?
