Hey there Laurel...
I wouldn't worry about
feeling a bit sick to your stomach...even with food, that happened to me the first couple days on Effexor. It WILL pass, I am sure of this.
As for taking Klonopin WITH Effexor, my reason is because I have horrible panic attacks, and the Klonopin is used to keep those away. Not sure if you have panic attack issues...my brain isn't working right now, but if you do, then that could be why your doctor told you to use it. Klonopin is great for helping you calm down. It eases your nerves so to say. So, I don't know what your doctor had in mind when prescribing it to you, but as for me, it is for the panic attacks, and I take it twice daily, not as needed.
Please, continue to keep me updated.
Just to let you know, I am doing well on Effexor XR. In fact, I hit a point of total motivation, I WANT my life back, and I am going to take all the steps in doing so. I have been wanting to become a nurse all my life, and worked in nursing homes most of my adult life...well, I am going to start going to school to become a nurse after the 1st of the year. I am going to get settled in at a nursing home a nursing assistant, and then, once I feel comfortable doing that, I AM going to school.
We are given one life, and we need to use it wisely. I have wasted too much of my life sitting on the sidelines watching it pass by, and I am NOT going to do it anymore.
Sorry to go on and on...It's just tonight, I realized how bad things are, like with me not working, and I recently had a birthday....just turned 27, and I am having a hard time realizing I am 27 with no real career, and I live in an apartment, and I just want better for me, my son, and my boyfriend.
So, again, sorry to tack this onto your post...it all just kinda came out.
I wish you all the best, and loook forward to more updates from you.
Keep your head up sweetie...I have a good feeling about
