Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Hello -- how long have you been taking the medication?
Have you discussed this with a medical professional?
no dont trust my doc anymore
thats why im asking you
Okay. I would not suggest switching medications without discussing with a psychiatrist (or medical doctor) you trust. Xanax is an intermediate drug (lasts a few hours in your system)...to assist you with a quick onset of panic -- while klonopin is a long-acting drug (can last a few days in your system)
When you say feel bad after 4 days; does this mean you've already tried it?
yes stopped xanax started klonopin
jittery anxious bad stomah
And you're not feeling well?
not at all
I would suggest you go back onto the dose of xanax you were initially prescribed.
ok stop klonopin?
Okay, prior to switching were you taking both medications?
klonopin for 4 days now only no xanax
Okay, then yes, I would suggest your stop taking the 2mg of klonopin and go back onto the 6mg of xanax
ok than u
Okay, anything else I can help you with?
no thank u you helped
Okay and if you feel like the xanax isn't help -- I would get a medication evaluation by a psychiatrist you trust
and feel comfortable with.
ok will do
Glad I could help!
