I recently stopped taking Haldol after taking it for a very long time because it caused me to gain a ton of weight. The Haldol was great at managing my anxiety symptoms; almost like a miracle drug...but I have a history of an eating disorder and the constant weight gain was really starting to bother me.
Since I stopped taking Haldol, I have been a horrible, anxious mess. My doctor prescribed me Effexor XR for anxiety and PRN Klonopin. With the Klonopin, I'm allowed to take up to two 0.5 tablets a day. Well, the Klonopin isn't working at all. I still feel horrible all of the time. I'm thinking about asking my doctor if I can try Ativan instead. Any thoughts on this?
Also, I've been taking at least one 0.5 mg Klonopin a day and I'm feeling more and more depressed. Do you think the Klonopin is causing the depression or the excessive anxiety?
