Jane...glad you posted originally. After reading about why you were considering stopping all the meds, advice is easier to give. I think you received several good responses. Your reasoning for wanting more energy is sound and rational. Your pdoc is the best source for an answer to your situation. I want to comment on your family doctors reaction to your use of klonopin. Klonopin is an anxiolitic, some use it as a mood stabalizer, some for epilepsy, some for sleep, and some for a few other reasons. Point is that Klonopin is a pshych drug. Family physicians don't specialize in psychiatric conditions, Pdocs do. Would you rely on your family doctor to treat you for a heart condition? Probably not. You would get better treatment from a cardiologist. If you had cancer, I'm sure you would rather have an oncologist treat it than your family doctor. The same applies to psychiatric conditions and meds. I'm not implying that family docs don't have a working knowledge of these conditions and the meds to treat them, they just aren't specialists. Let the psychiatrist who has specialized training in psychiatric conditions and meds treat that aspect of your health. You have a miriad of options available that you haven't tried, your best source for imput and new cocktails is the pdoc. Great thing about all this is that you are not on high doses of either drug, so switching cocktails should be easier than if you were on high doses. See your pdoc about this situation at the first opportunity, for your sake and your husbands. All my best. Robin
