I previously posted, but had a few new questions I was hoping you could help me out with! I've been on everything, but in late February 07', I started taking 2 mg of Clonazepan (1 mg in a.m. and 1 mg p.m.), 20 mg Lexapro and occassionally 10 mg Ambien to sleep. I'll admit, I wasn't that good about taking the Clonazepan as I was worried about becoming addicted and I didn't notice much help. I told my phsychiatrist (sp) it made me a little edgy and I didn't notice a difference, so he stopped me and told me he didn't need to see my anymore, as he wasn't sure what I was looking for???? I have since continued to take the Lexapro and Ambien, but the last four or five days have been really bad. I can't sleep and if I do, I have terrible nightmares. I wake up feeling like my body is going a million miles a minute and it continues like that all day, to the point that when I was out in public yesterday, my neck would twitch.
My symptoms recently are;
Cold chills, but then sweating
Feeling like my body is running so fast
Incapable of hanling any stress
Feeling on edge
Constantly worried about what people think of me
My eyes feel like they are going to pop out of my head and feel wide open
Twitching, tremors on and off
I have cut back on the caffeine somewhat and the can of chew I had per day and I quit my stressful job of five years on Tuesday. My questions;
Could the Lexapro now be having an adverse reaction to my body, maybe now that I don't have the Clonazepan as well?
Could medicine all together be bad for me? I really believe everything hit bottom when I started taking Xanax about 3 years ago and since have tried a lot of things.
I was given 100 mg Clomepramine and had to be taken to the E.R.
When I'm on medicine or not on medicine and I don't drink, I am usually fine. What started all this, was the fact I went out drinking, couldn't remember the night and worried myself to death. Went to the doctor and they put me on medication. Down hill after that.
