Your doc should have told you what to expect if anything IMHO

I honestly believe they just think they can do what they want and not let us know what is going on
We have to be our own best advocate

Positive note
YOU have the klonopin so I am hoping that will help you thru this
If you have any bad W/D or problems hun DO
Go to doc or clinic or er
I would hope all does go smoothly for you

Good Evening,

Switching 90 mgs of cymbalta to Paxil, one AD to another.

Lamictal ? for a mood stablilizer at that dose.

Klonopin for anxiety.

Just my 2 cents but remember I am not a professional.

Lyn is right, your physician has a responsible to educate you on all your meds and the side effects and withdrawal sx.

Talk with your physician and be your own best advocate.

Good Luck,
