This is Kitt, if my memory is correct you were released from the hospital around December 16th. The meds you had were Rx pain meds, OTC pain meds, Ativan 1mg tabs, Xanax 5.mg to be taken three times per day, Wellburtin and Celexa. You said you could not see you P-doc for a week and you were geting some of the meds from your regular physician.
IMHO your Pdoc should be handling your mental health meds and be well aware of all meds you are taking. You are getting meds from more then one source and mixing them which is dangerous.
Please see your Pdoc and get your meds straightened out.

Good Morning Mark,
When I had my major meltdown 3 years ago I was on Klonopin and I did find it was fast acting but once I got to the point where my anxiety and depression were more under control I was taken off Klonopin and switched to Valium which is longer acting and we weaned down the amount of benzo I was using.
Good luck with all your meds and a warm welcome to the family of A & P.
