Hey Guys!!!

Im posting from the states.  I can on a mini break to visit my boyfriend and relax!
Now before I say this I do NOT condone taking medication without consulting your doctor...but
My boyfriend takes clonazepam,  (I also used to take it when my anxiety was not as bad) and since I have been here I have been taking .5 mls in the morning and .5 at night.  Now again I know it is wrong...
But I have had the best day in a long time.
When I used to take it I found that it would knock me out, and that might have been because I was taking 1 mg.  But I felt great, and happy.  I still get the "Im crazy feelings but my brain does not go into over load about it.
Im posting this because I want the peps who are suffering from anxiety to talk to there doctors about claz. 
just a thought...
Im really glad I found this site...Talk soon everyone!

Good Morning 1day, Welcome to the States  I do, in good  faith, have to state to all the members do  not  take someone else's medication if it is not prescribed for you.

There are many good benzos available for anxiety so I agree, if you feel you need medication please see your own physician to discuss this with your Doc.

Happy Easter 1day and have a great visit.

HI 1Day! It really feels good when you find something that works for you! Why don't you talk to your Dr about perscribing you some since you've gotten such great results from it. Once again i'm happy you've found something that works for you,I hope you continue to do well!

Hi 1day,

I'm glad you found something that works for you and you feel so good.  As you and the others have said, now that you have found what works for you please see your doc to get a prescription for this.  I'm really happy for you!!!  Let us know how it goes once you get your prescription.

Take care,

Hi Anthea,

I am so happy that you did find something that works for you. And I hope that you can get a prescription for that medication. But isn't it nice to feel good for a change. I know how hard it is when you don't.

Good luck to you my friend, and have a Happy Easter.

Yaaay! Hooray for you.  I'm so very glad that you have found a med that works for you and thankyou for sharing this information (and your happiness) with us.  I know you are sensible and don't go around free-ranging other people's meds but I must echo what Kitt said for my own warped sense of responsibilty to others on the site (always check with doc before taking prescribed meds)..again yaay, hugs to you gal xx
