Hi Linda,

I'm Dr. Bridget. I am sorry that you are so anxious...not a good feeling I know. Because Klonopin is a controlled substance, you will not be able to get it online legally. I know this isn't the news you were hoping for, but I hope it will save you the time of further searching to know this. Would the physician who prescribes you Effexor be able to help? Given you current situation, I am sure you could get something for a short time to help you sleep. If not, I could help you find another physician in your area.

Please reply with any further questions or concerns. I am standing by and happy to help.

I have asked my Dr. and explained my reasons and they will not give the kolipin they tell me to increase my effexor which I don't want to do. And that doesn't help me sleep.
Expert:  Dr. Bridget replied 1 year ago.

I agree. Although increasing your Effexor may help some with anxiety, it will not help you get that sleepy feeling.

Did you want me to help search for another physician in your area?

Thanks...I will get searching. Will you be using insurance? I can be sure the physician will accept it.

Ok thank you. The problem I have is when I ask for this certain med. they think I'm addicted. I'm a middle age woman who went thru menopause ten years ago have never had any drug or alcohol problems. It's seems just asking for 1/2 mg is such a big deal. I guess because I've never done any kind of meds. before I didn't realize what a big deal it was t get this. All I know is that it's the only thing that helps me sleep. I don't know how people walk around on it lol
Expert:  Dr. Bridget replied 1 year ago.

You are very welcome! There are so many people in America who use medications like Klonopin for all the wrong reasons and so doctors have become pretty strict about prescribing them. It ruins it for the honest people like you and makes it hard to get appropriate treatment at times. I hope one of these physicians come through for you. I wish you all the best:)
