Im in a differant state from where my Doc is and am about to run out of my Klonopin, which I have been on for more than 4 years. I did at one point a few years ago have a seziuer because I ran out of them.. Because I can't get into see my Doc in person they will not refill them for me. Im scared should I go the ER.
I had never had a seizures before I was put on Benzos, its a scary scary thing and the withdrawls are pure hell...I feel like if I have to go in to the ER to get me sum klonopins to get me threw until I get back home, that they look at me like an addict...They dont understand what we go threw, we get put on this Medication from a careless Doctor and when run out because of certain cercunstances we are screwed becuse they are so controlled...Damned if we do and Damned if don't
who prescribes your klonopins usually? a psychiatrists or your primary care? Because your primary care might be willing to send a script in if its in your files and you have seen them recently. I know ER's are very judgmental and there is a stigma about klonopin users. Plus, its not exactly cheap to roll into the ER for a few pills.
Are you on an extended out of state visit? If so, then I would find another doctor ASAP, make an appointment, get him/her to talk to your other physician, and get the prescription. In the mean time, maybe you can cut your dosage a bit to save on pills but you don't want to run out.
