> Jane, I wonder why you are doing this? Is there a v. good reason you are quitting the medicines? (i.e. -wanting to get pregnant, etc.) Even if that were the case, you can be on SOME meds while you are pregnant, but a dr could help you with that. Please don't go off the meds because you feel beter now, cuz the meds are probably helping you... I'm just concerned you will crash. If you don't like your current cocktail, you could discuss with your dr and try a change. I'm a little worried about this...

> No I won't get pregnant. Too old. Husband just became disabled. I need more energy! Have been having lack of energy problem for 2 years. Pdoc tried adding WB but I could not tolerate it. Great at first but I would get agitated and that is just not me. Either K or Celexa is making me too lethargic and unmotivated. I must get more energy. The more Celexa I take the less energy I have and I can't sleep without the Klonopin. Oh me, oh my. What to do? Thanks for your concern. I will ponder and keep searching.

Jane,

You might try taking *all* your Klonopin at bedtime (if you don't already do so). Then, try cutting your Celexa dose down and see what happens. If you are taking 20mg/day, try 10mg/day for a while and see if that helps. Oh, another thing-you might try taking your Celexa dose in the evening instead of first thing in the morning. Or...you might switch the Celexa to a more activating SSRI like Zoloft or Prozac.

hope this helps some,

Mitch
