The nurse practitioner prescribed Topamax for my severe anxiety so she could take me off my 1mg lorazepam that I've been on 2 years with good results. I am currently taking Ribavirin and Sovaldi for hep c with only 1 month to go. I'm scared to take this. Please help.
Yes they do use the Topamax to treat anxiety but at the same time they should be tapering you off of the lorazepam it is rare that they would just stop it but since you have been on it for 2 years your going to need help with the withdrawals I would give the practitioner a call in the morning and see what they have to say.
Stardust451, Just as well you have not started, And she can have her opinion but just because she does not want to prescribe the benzo's is her problem there are other doctors for some of us that is the only thing that really works. have a good day.
