Good question. Dr. Emory wants me to replace it with the clonazepam. TCAs are contraindicated with stimulants aren't they? As I build up on stimulants he wants me to be getting off of the doxepin. I don't think he's wild about doxepin to begin with. It's fairly dirty, as we know. I think he feels that the clonazepam will also add some mood stabilization that might be good for me.

I have mixed feelings about getting on the clonazepam. I am worried that it might add to my depression and that even a short trial could result in a long tapering period. I know that Gabbi said in an earlier post that she thought her dexedrine had stopped working for her at one point but then she realized that it was the clonazepam that was killing the effect. If the clonazepam doesn't work for me, then I wonder what he would have in mind for the anxiety. He did mention mood stabilizers. Also, he doesn't like Xanax. He thinks it's too stimulating.
