I had panic attacks a while back and was put on xanax for them. Now they started again and I want to go back to get something for them. My question is how do I tell the Dr. I want klonopin instead of xanax? The xanax put me to sleep where the others don't.

Hello, Whisper! How are you?

The best thing to do is not to ask for a specific medication, just inform your doctor of the problem you had with the Xanax and let them suggest an alternative.

The FDA classifies this medication as a benzodiazepine, so it carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Stay with what you have. I asked for Ativan once, lost my Xanax, hated Ativan, stopped and almost died. Remember, its XANAX & KLONOPIN

Hi Verwin, I've taken xanax and they put me out like a lite, and I've took kolonopin and do just fine with them. I know you can't just ask for meds now days cause it looks bad. But I'd really rather have the kolonopin. My attacts are getting so bad I'm waking up with my heart racing and not being able to breath. I just don't know what to do!

Most Doctor's might actually prefer giving you Klonopin and they do seem to work. I have some but have only taken 2. Elizabeth Taylor used Ativan as it is supposedly stronger than the rest. It did not address anxiety, just made you sleepy. I was tired of these mind drugs and decided to stop as my doctor moved away. Two weeks later I was in the ER & Hospital for a week!

Hey just a update. I went to the Dr. He gave me 15 xannax and some Zoloft. I tried to tell him I'm not depressed but he said it was good for anxiety too. Needless to say I'm not taking a antidepressants no matter what it is. I've had a bad reaction with them. I guess I just waisted over 100$ cause I'm not going back to that quack. I am looking for another Dr as I text y'all.

I'm having severe acute anxiety attacks that sometimes lead to seizures. I had a heart monitor on for a month and had a few reactions but didn't seizure and was told that I have the worst anxiety and ruled out other reasons for seizures. I was so happy to find out I wasn't dying until I was not given any any anxiety meds because i'm on suboxone! I'm super upset, been clean with no positive U/A's for almost 10 years and they still worry I will get addicted to a med ill need almost daily if not every day, plus at age 40 I really feel im getting f***ed around and need to find a new dr. who actually cares in the central vt. area. Any help would be appreciated very much. Feels like i'm gonna die and an extra beta blocker does nothing to help.

Re: Johnathan (# 9)

I made my Suboxone doctor my primary. He gives me Klonopin 1mg x3, Flexeril 10mg x3, Ambien 10mg, Plus my "crazy" drugs.

TO OTHERS: Ativan only works well when used by IV. The Nurses at our regular hospital call it Vitamin A. ;) I have had the pill, and it did NOTHING!

Re: Johnathan (# 9)

I’m also a suboxone patient. You really just need to find a new doctor. My psychiatrist told me he wouldn’t put me on klonopin with suboxone so I said ok and went out and found a new doctor. He immediately put me on klonopin and I felt like a new man. You don’t deserve to live with extreme anxiety because you’re doc is scared to prescribe a benzo. Find a new one and feel better.
