Update:

Gonna be doing klonopin every 2 days for a week or so then every 3 days and so on till i can get off it I called  my psychiatrist today and he told me to try this so well see how it goes, also started day 1 of this breathing device exercises 10 minutes near bedtime so well see how that goes in 2 weeks or so. Today was a shitty day so to speak not as bad as before because I feel the Cipralex not letting it get out of control but it could be due to stopping the clonozapem cold turkey but well see how this way goes now

Update:

Took the klonopin yesterday night not taking it this night, also started doing breathing training or exercises on the frolov device, this little aparatus i ordered and got a plan for myself by email from the doctor on it, will report in 2 weeks back to them how its working it could be the cure all for this breathing issues, did session 1 last night for 10 minutes 2 seconds in the nose 6-8 out the mouth before bed in the evening will see how it goes, took 20mg of cipralex as directed in the morning.

Update: Now 3:03 AM here don't feel the need to take the klonopin today as  I really dont need it and therefore not going to take it, did 10 minutes on the frolov device breathing machine and took 20mg cipralex in the morning not a bad day but getting better, today focused only on breathing and taking deep breaths through my nose feeling better with this method will keep it on for tommorow and see how I sleep and awake.

Update:

Took 20mg cipralex this morning felt good most of the day today trying to breath mainly through my nose even when those urges come on I take it through the nose this seems to help, did breathing exercises about 10 minutes ago, also didnt need .5 klonopin today so I will use it as needed and hopefully I wont need it for a while. Hope tommorow goes good

Update for yesterday:

Didn't take klonopin again yesterday had work and had a bit anxiety at work but seem to manage it and still feel asleep pretty easily, did 12 minutes on the frolov device and took 20mg cipralex in the morning as directed, it been about a month and a few days on cipralex. Still focusing on breathing only through the nose and this has seemed to help quite a bit  we will see how it goes.

Sorry for not updating in forever, I went off lexapro and now am back on it currently at day 16, This is my second time at it and I started at 10mg and experienced side effects like loss of appetite, slightly increased anxiety, insomnia. I dont know if the meds work as fast the second time around but I hope I will feel better and better, I have klonopin but I am afraid to take it due to increased anxiety I Had when on it before idk why I get that reaction because before it worked great.

Yesterday would mark day 16 of lexapro round 2. Yesterday started out ok but in the evening got worse felt like crap going to sleep  could barely get any deep satisfying breaths and had a hard time sleeping, hopefully this med kicks in soon. I feel like I need to man up and take this klonopin and hope that it works in my favour for anxiety before When I took lexapro i took klonopin daily and it really  helped me. I am going to try taking magnesium and fish oil in the morning to see if that has any help as I have heard good things about it. I have a psychiatrist appointment this week i think thursday and I will discuss everything with him and go from there.

Yesterday again was another high anxiety crappy day, especially through the night and I barely got any sleep, I tried to take .25mg klonopin and see how that felt didnt seem to do much. I have a psychiatrist appointment this thursday but will try to move it up forward and see if i can talk to him earlier and let him know whats going on.

Day 18

Today started out bad and ended bad. The breathing issue was there the whole day and worse into the evening hopefully I can get some sleep but im not planning on it, I took .5mg klonopin just a min ago and hopefully it will help me get my breathing better. I called my psychiatrist today and Ill be meeting hime tomorrow at 4:00 PM so its sooner than thursday I need to discuss what im going through and maybe change some meds idk if this klonopin is cutting it anymore.
