When you are clinnically depressed when you stop the meds the depression just comes back.Its not like an anti biotic that you take for a bit and you are well. Maintinating your meds and goin g to therapy is how to beat depression.There are several meds you could try like celexa and lexapro.

My doctors wants me to take clonazepam 0.25 twice a day for dry mouth syndrome. Its been goin on for 5 moths. I'm so scared to take this. Does anyone know if it really works for this issue. I don't want to take something that I've
read has terrible side effects.
Do some homework first -- unless something has been learned about this drug I don't know about, one of the most common side effects of any drug that affects the brain is dry mouth. I don't know of this being a symptom of anxiety, which is what this drug treats. What I do know is that if you take it twice a day forever, because if you have dry mouth syndrome and your doctor is recommending a benzo that doc isn't ever going to fix it, you stand a good chance of becoming addicted to it and of having to up the dose when it poops out, as it often does. There are ways of trying to treat this problem, and maybe this is one of them, but again, Google it for that purpose and see if there's any evidence for it helping. I'm guessing not. Does your doc think your dry mouth is caused by anxiety? Now, I found this, but you posted on a thread that is 11 years old. If you make a new post, more people might respond, and maybe one of them has your problem. Did you get a second opinion from whatever doc it is that specializes in dry mouth? Also, since one of the biggest causes of this problem is medication, did you take or are you taking any meds that might have caused it? As I say, as an anxiety sufferer, every med I've ever been told to look into or take has dry mouth as a possible side effect.
