Well guys, here's how things went.
I was nervous, but all went well. I made it through. She took me off the Xanax all together, and put me on Klonopin .5 mg 2 times daily.
She took me from 20 mg of Lexapro to 10 mg of Lexapro for 2 weeks. On the 15th I go back, and she wants to look into Effexor XR.
Anyone have thoughts on their experiences with either drug???
She says she feels I have some depression, OCD, panic attacks, and anxiety disorder. She also says she would like to keep the thought of me being bipolar in the back of her mind, as some of what we talked about makes her think I could be bipolar, especially with the family history. That all sounds overwhelming to me.
So, I guess I am starting the Klonopin today, and we will go from here.
Anyone with any thoughts will be appriciated. THANKS GUYS FOR EVERYTHING!
