While avanza and zyprexa are both well known for weight gain I'm lucky I've actually lost weight but the trade off being major withdrawal from clonazepam. sad
I've been living on valium all day today just trying to stay sane. I see my own pdoc tommorrow so have written what the hospital have done so I won't forget details. I really hate living like this, I did some research when I got out and found that they've once again stuffed up how the withdrawal should be handled (at first it was going to be over 6mths which is the information I found) now the they've dropped me twice in 4 days.
I just wish doctors would realise not everyone is a text book and we all act differently to the different meds.

I am sorry that you have had a nasty experience and that makes it hard to trust but hang on and you will soon see your Pdoc.  Hopefully you can get your meds straightened out.

Thanks Lyn,

I saw my pdoc yesterday and he listened to me about what happened and he's going to drop my clonazepam by .25mg every 6 weeks. It may seem slow but it's the way I  need it done.

He also asked my hubby who came along if he had questions, and hubby said it's like watching me go round and round in circles. The pdoc said that's the nature of the illness and that he was quite shocked that even when I'm at my worse I still function and get things done. He said he was pretty happy about that which was nice to hear.

We're now working on externalising when I get down or anxious. Rather then just say it's the meds or pms I have to look for another reason. Like last night I felt a bit down and realised that the weekend was coming up. Hubby is currently on holidays but normally I'm alone with the kids so that puts me in an anxious mood
