We have tried workding a long time on my genreralized anxiety issue. Last week I spent 3 days on klonopin. about 4mg klonopin 3 tines a day. It was helpful in the mornings bit did little in the middleof the afternoon and on, My best time for everything has alwys been early (now that a my sleeping meds a lets me feel like I sleep. So med work best the the am .
Next we tried Valium. I took 10ng in morning and 10 mid at 1:00. This the only made where I felt norm, sleepy. Unfortuatly and on day two, I started expressing diorganized skeking from time time.. It would be like my husband would ask me something and my answer would sart of correct (in content, not correctness). Then I would end up taklking about some something totally idfferent, memories, dreams, mostly. I never know day, month and so on. Sometimes after a stroke people will have problems with word recognation too. For me it ttransient. I confuse red/blue alot. I also "know" what red light is and what your supposed todo. I put te car in park because, I coouldn't stop my brain telling me to go (no else was there either time) Today my husdband me not say anything where will take our daughter to school (she changed schools today.) I stopped the Valium and am getting a little better. I am back to klonopim 2mg the am, 4mg. at about noontime, and my last dose only 1 mg 6:oo. If the symptoms stay the same, I will be happy- if it doesn't I don't trink I can take benxo's . about five year ago I tried so manyand had no bad reactions and the doses were much higher.
Are there others out there who had lost cognitive functioning that continud past goiug stopping the drug. If I stay on klonopin we will increase dose. Since dosing varies so much, how low/high shough I be expectiong him raiese it?
