Hello, I have always had anxiety and have been a bad worrier. About 3 years ago I was on Zoloft for anxiety and as far as I could remember it worked well. About 1 year ago I weaned off Zoloft with no side effects. It took about 6 months (I took it really slow). 9 months to a year past when things go stressful with life, my job, rent, and weird things that were happening (fear of being alone in apartment). This caused constant fear and worry and there were nights I didn't sleep or slept in my car. I couldn't control myself and started losing myself. Two months past and it got worse and worse to a point where everyday I was detached from myself, I didn't know what was going on, and constant confusion. I felt as if I was doing things but I did not know why. I finally went to my Family Doctor and he prescribed me 10mg of Lexapro and 0.5mg of Klonopin. (He said to try the lex because sometimes SSRI wont work the second time around). I started the 10mg of lexapro and couldn't take the side effects the first 3 days. Extreme nausea, deep, stomach aches, Depression, anxiety, confusion, loss of myself and every side effect I felt. Last night I cut a 10mg to 5mg and I felt much better today. More calm and had a positive outlook. At night anxiety came back so I cut it again and have been taking .25mg of klonopin. My quesitons are..
Is this normal for me to feel like this?
Is it ok to take .25mg klonopin to help sleep at night?
If this doesnt work will the Zoloft that worked once work again?
I have so many questions little answers. Sorry for the rambling but thank you in advance.
