Back from Doctor

I got backfrom doctor today. She is tapering me off my zoloft (finish my half .25 for the rest of this week, then .25 everyother day for a week then off). Also tapering me off .50 klonopin (with added buspar during tapering). Half klonipin (klonopin) 3 times a day with added buspar for two weeks then half klonopin 2x/day for two weeks with added buspar (I don't have the dosages for buspar in front of me), then 1x/day klonipin (klonopin) for two weeks, then off. Any comments or advice out there. Have ony been on these medicines for  8 weeks. Thanks

Wow, u've been on a lot of meds all at once. I should take u as an example. I have been prescribed Celexa but I havent taken it. Too scared of what might happen or how I will react. Maybe I should trust my doc, like u, and just take them. What do u think? Have u ever been on Celexa?

I only started them 8 weeks ago, .50 zoloft and .50 klonopin 3x/day. Started to feel extreme anxiousness in the mornings, and blamed the zoloft so I asked my doctor to get off it and she gave me a tapering schedule, once off that I will begin tapering off the klonopin (using buspar---not as addictive as other benzos, so dr said). Hoping I can try to work my way through these attacks without medicine. Are you suppose to take celexa for anxiety. Is the anxiety severe enough? All you can do is try and see if it works for you. If not, tell dr.. Do not stop taking if you start without tapering off.
