Hello -
I saw your profile page and you listed that you were taking xanax, klonapin, ativa and valium. You take these meds because you have anxiety attacks. I would assume (and hope) that you are under the care of a doctor. It just seems to me that taking all these meds is a bit much. They are meds that you can become dependent upon, no doubt about it. They are also meds that you cannot, should not just stop taking. Benzo's can cause seizures if they are just stopped. These are meds that you would have to be eased off of by your doctor. I take klonapin in a very low dose each day ... even though I only take 1mg. I would still have to be carefully removed from it if I ever chose to do so. I would bring up any worries or concerns you have about your meds with your doctor. I do wish you the very best .... take care!
