Our expert says:
I don;t remember why you're on Rivotril, as it's primarily a treatment for Epilepsy, sometimes used for Bipolar Disorder, when used with antidepressants, and it not a proper treatment for anxiety. It really sounds as if it is not affecting you usefully, and you should see your prescribing doctor again and tell him all about this, and ask for alternative medication without these severe side-effects. Tell us in a fresh mesage what your doctor says and does about this.
And JM's right, many people find their BP rises when they see the doctor, from sheer anxiety. But he ought to believe what you tell him in this situation.
