My anxiety is really bad. My paycheck didn't come in the mail after waiting a week. My check for the vet is going to bounce because I went out to buy cigarettes because I was so nervous.

I'm taking 1.5-2 mg klonopin and 20 mg propanolol a day. Still, my anxiety gets really bad sometimes.

I'm totally broke and spent all evening making a piece of crap video. I just want to go to sleep early.

I meet with my dr on Monday about this. In the mean time, I have no money to buy my klonopin, so I'm taking BF's klonopin. I feel like my life is a mess. I'm feeling mildly depressed.

I know I've had bad anxiety in the past, but my meds seem to be helping now. As far as I know your meds will get increased until it reaches the level which suits you best.

Have you had a discussed this with your doc? It is possible you are not getting the proper dossage or combo you need.

We've been discussing it, and working with it. She added propanolol last time and increased my klonopin. I think she needs to increase the klonopin more b/c I've been on the same dosage for three years and I'm sure the effects have worn off by now.

Thanks for the input everyone!

Sorry to hear that.

At least you'll get to see the doctor, be sure to keep a back up with your meds. Sometimes I keep an emergency stash in case anything happens and yes I know what it's like to be off Klonopin....not a good feeling.

Thanks, I do think that now that I have the klonopin I'm doing a good bit better. Still, I've had lots of situations lately to be anxious about. So, I appreciate the support!
