I am on Fluoxetine (Prozac) 20 mgs/ day, Buspirone (Buspar) 15mgs three times a day, Lamotrigine 100 mgs/day, & now switching from Clonazepam (Klonopin) 2mgs/day to Lorazepam (Ativan) 2 mgs/day.
This is the 2nd time in my life I’ve been on Fluoxetine and Lorazepam.
i am trying to wean off of Clonazepam to transition to Lorazepam but is that even necessary? The reason for the transition???
Because I need a more fast acting Anxiety reliever during this CrAzY time we’re in with the Covid-19 virus going on. But my intent is to eventually wean off the Lorazepam once I can figure out how to get this anxiety under control.
AND my long long term goal is to eventually get off all these medications But i know that has to be done slower than molasses!
The reason for my thoughts that I’m being overly medicated us because ONE... I’m not feeling better. I’m severely depressed most days with having occasional suicidal thoughts. My anxiety is still an issue I can’t get under control with Meds nor counseling. And then to top it off , I also have Chronic pain ( from a bad fall i took 4 years ago ).Rheumatologist diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia which is a big possibility, But I’m even starting to wonder if ALL these Meds are part if the culprit of my muscular and possible nerve pain? And perhaps these meds are actually making my depression and Anxiety worse. Help! Any feedback or personal simiiar experiences would Be extremely helpful. Thanks in advance
