I try to be extremely careful about how much klonopin I take...but lately I have been extremely anxious and depressed. I took .75 mg last night and another .5 this morning. I have seasonal depression in the summer so I am having a bad couple of days. I guess I just dont know how long to rely on the Klonopin before I say ok enough is enough. I need some alternative treatment. Was hospitalized last year in August...and while i dont want to have to go in again...I'm wondering how much longer before I shouold give in. I seemed to be much better after my last hospitalization but think because of all the meds they put me on. Don't know if being that medicated is a great long-term solution.

I can relate.  I just started a new med and my Xanax use is increasing while I am waiting for Buspar to kick in.  I can already tell it is working a bit and not making me sick like AD's do but I am playing the waiting game right now and trying to hang in.  The plan was that the Buspar would greatly reduce anxiety therefore I would be able to lower and then ween off Xanax, not there yet.  I have been on Xanax a long time and we are starting to think it is increasing depression.  so, we shall see.  some days I feel better than I have in a long time and other days I feel I can barely make it through.

Hope things get better for you soon, me too!
