I was just recently diagnosed with Panic Disorder, High Anxiety, and Severe Depression. After 4 plus trips to the ER over the past few months because of breathing problems and symptoms of what I thought was a heart attack, I finally got a good diagnosis...closure. The ER doctor prescribed me (.25 mg) xanax to take 3 x daily or as needed for anxiety. I followed up with my family doctor 2 days later who evaluated me and decided to put me on Lexapro (10mg), and Klonopin (.5 mg). My question is, after i take the Lexapro (SSRI) in the morning along with 1 mg kilonopin, can i take xanax as well around 6 to 8 hours later if i feel i need it? Basically, can i mix Klonopin and Xanax if not taken at the same time? I also am told to take another 1 mg of Klonopin before bedtime to help me sleep, but it doesnt really work to well?? So overall here is the breakdown: morning= 1 mg klonopin, 10 mg lexapro. 2 pm= .5 mg xanax 10 pm= 1 mg klonopin. Is this safe? Any answers would be greatly appreciated as I am new to this.
