    Rivotril

    hey all,

    Have just heard about Rivotril (though am sure it has been around for ages). The thing is though that it is used for treating anxiety/panic attacks and epilepsy!! As some of you may know, I have panic attacks but my biggest fear is of having a seizure..Am so tempted to go to my GP and ask for it..sorry, had to share..

    Hi Sarah,

    Ive never heard of it. But a chat with your doctor wouldnt hurt. I can understand why you are thinking of taking it.

    Good Luck

    Feel free to PM me, if you want to talk.

    Keep focused, keep positive.

    Sarah,

    Rivotril or clonazepam is a benzodiazepam similar to valium, xanax etc so is addictive, get used to it and need escalating dose etcetce.

    It is used in epilepsy to relax the constricted muscles just before or after an attack.

    Did you want it as a ' have it in your purse and will never need it ' treatment ?

    Your anxiety is the human representation of the pictures that you paint using your many vivid colours of revolving and reoccurring thoughts.
    How big is your gallery ?

    aaahhhh I see Meg..I assumed it was like an anti-depressant that was taken daily..so basically you take it if and when you feel a seizure coming on..? Yes, I think I would feel comfortable if I had a few in my purse..
