So I been in 30mg for a little while now and was doing well. Then my kids father passed away Friday. And I have been down hill almost feels like I take zero medication. My sleep is off can't eat and my mind won't stop racing, and just thinking and thinking and thinking. I been sepersted from him for 6 years, but my anxiety is coming from worrying about the boys and how they are going to deal with it, so far they have accepted it. I do have clonazepam that doctor gave me when I was going threw side effects, I have not taken any at all, as I am afraid to take meds to begin with... has any one taken clonazepam what side effects did they experience I am so afraid of being dizzy. Is this just a blip I am going thee because of the passing of him or am I going to need an increase yet again. Has any one gone threw this? As I am feeling I am loosing my mind again.

    I lost my brother and sister in the same year and went through a rough patch. I adopted my brothers son and everything seemed to go well until he started asking more and more about what happened to my brother and on top of everything I slipped backwards.

    Waited a week a believe no relief went and upped my dose took a little while but I got back on track. 6 months later same thing. Went up to 30. A few months ago started slipping back waited it out it went away. Fast forward today and I am still on 30 didn't respond to 40 and have been prescribed klonopin to help level me out. If I level out I'll stick with citalopram or try Prozac.

    I would give it a week try to go about your life even if it's extremely hard just do your best and you might find it's just a blip. If it lasts longer than 2 weeks I would see your doctor.....or my doctor.... I myself wouldnt see your doctor.

    They make me very very tired after an hour when it kicks in I don't feel the least bit dizzy.

      Expecislly reading all the horror story's about them. I don't have any issues abusing things. I am more less scared to take anything that it will make me feel weird, high, or won't be able to walk etc or and being dizzy is a huge thing so scared to be dizzy. I read that u can drool get dizzy get more anxiety etc

      If your nervous just take half and give it an hour. It takes about 45min-2 hours to work.

      So u think if I break the pill in half, it's will be easier, less side efffcts? So that would mean I am only takeing 25 mg of it.

      Ok, thanks a bunch for all your info, I have read so much bad online and that totally scared the crap out of me. So I was just to afraid to take it, but I am gonna need to do something sooner or later to get out do this rut. Now that u take 1.5 does it take all your anxiety away?
