Dear Kasandra

Thank you for visiting

I suggest that you ask your doctor about Cipramil, which is a anti-depressant, as well as an anti-anxiety tablet. I recommend that you stop using all sleeping tablets. You can use Propranolol 20mg, twice daily.

Thanks for your concern. I did CBT therary but got 2 expensive. The rephynol helps me and i only take half when i need it a pack last me 3 monts so my dr knows. The xanor is def it zonks me out (probably suppose to) but i dö nt like it and will not take it again. I do however try alternatives for anxiety. Excercise lavender drops dont always help it also due to hormones the insomnia.

My heart is breaking for you Kasandra because your Dr needs a kick in the backside!
How can he be SO irresponsible to put you on to two different types of benzodiazapines which are both HIGHLY addictive and if you already having anxiety and sleeping problems. If he completed his degree and has kept up to date with the medical world he would know that putting a patient onto these types of drugs is only as a desperate, *last* attempt!
Ideally you should go along to see a psychologist who specializes in C.B.T. (Cognitive, Behavioural Therapy) as this is the right person to help you to get to the root of your anxiety issues and how to live your life - in control of those issues.
PLEASE try to stop taking the Xanor and also that miserable Rohypnol! I am surprised there is still a doctor around who is dumb enough to be happy to prescribe a date rape drug!
