Yes, she sees a psychaistrist, but it is always a new one. One she saw a year ago, thought it could be the Klonopin, but she left. The one we last saw just said she didn't know, people react different on different medicines. It was our first visit, and so there wasn't much time to talk.
She was on the Klonopin before this was happening. At one point, it was 3 mg a day. The pysciatrist thought that oculd be causing the muscle weakness, and we weaned her down to 1 mg a day.
Three weeks ago, she was switched to Valium, and we hoped the problem would stop, but it is still happening.
Oh sorry, it was for panic attacks, like driving over bridges, leaving the house, etc.
No, she did not. She is a member of an HMO. They are not very open to additional costs. I thought she should have, but I didn't know how to find one.
