I have been taking lorazepam for 9 mnths now, normally only at bedtime. My doc just put me on clonazepam as well. Is it safe to take them both?

Didn't the doctor advise you on this?

Yes, well he said that he thinks I would be ok. But to me that isnt all that reassuring

Is he normally a good doctor?him thinking you should be ok doesnt sound very professional or reassuring.could you re-check to feel reassured?These are both benzodiazapines not that this is a bad thing.

are you on other meds also?

seems odd to me as they are both benzos in the same class. Had the lorazapam stopped having any effect.? I think maybe you should double check with GP

:yesyes: clonos r great for anxiety,but i expect you will get a load of comments now on how addictive tranx r and you should only be on them short term..etc etc.....by the way you wont hear all that from me-as a sufferer of social anxiety they have been a god send and work 100 times more effective than any ssri i have been on with no side effects apart from tiredness .

good luck!

I Take Clonzapam "klonopin" As Needed........and I Was Subscribed Floraxapam For Sleep When Needed........its All In The Valium Fam Maybe If The Clonzapam Is Working You Wont Need The Other ........i Wish You Well............linda

a friend of mine is seeing his shrink tomoz to ask for klonopin(rivotril)clonazepam...i gave him a couple of 0.5mg tabs and 1 tab knocked his anxiety on the head and he felt the best he has in many years.

i said to him not to build his hopes up as clonazepam isnt given so readily but reading some of your posts i feel more reassured for him thathe will get it. if you read the leaflet that comes with them -anxiety isnt mentioned at all ,more a drug for epilepsy,but as its part of the benzo family its the best one i have tried for my anxiety....valium alas has stopped working for me-
pity as i have 200 10mg tabs hanging about--ebay banned me from selling em:ohmy:
good luck out there...:shades:

HI all, I have just been prescribed some Lorazepam to use when I know I am going to feel anxious ie taking a flight... Having never taken medication for my anxiety before I am not too sure what to expect.... or whether to 'test' them before I fly next week. All advice gratfully received!
