anxiety all day long
« on: August 24, 2014, 11:05:53 PM »
I've tried taking 2 klonopin today and nothing is helping my racing heart calm down. I feel sick so I can't eat a lot. I don't know what to do. Deep breathing isn't helping either

Hi there! I get this too. One time while my heart was doing acrobatics (thump thump thump) I tried deep breathing exercises. Mistake. I had my husband bring me to the E.R. because after a while I felt like I was going to faint. I saw my doctor about this and he said that my deep breathing magnified my anxiety attack. I wasn't doing it right. Instead of being zen,I was sucking as much air in. He advised me to go do something else and keep myself occupied the next time it happened. So the next time I felt them, I kept myself busy and I forgot about it after a while. Hope this helps somehow.

Thanks for you're reply. I think Maybe I do the breathing wrong too. I w as thinking about trying one big those meditation cds or the ones that help with deep breathing. Sometimes distracting myself works but hasn't helped much lately

Hi B10,

The Klonopin will work - IME of using it... It just depends on the dosage and the timing...

In using Klonopin, it is very different than Xanax or Ativan - where Xanax and Ativan (Lorazepam) work very quickly, but don't last very long (4-6) hours - depending on the dosage.

How many mg of Klonopin and what times are you use using them?  Are you using them as needed or on a daily basis?
