Hi Ya!!

"Wow, its very hard to get your hands on valium, let alone ritalin, and together, *no way* - like in I'm sure the pdocs eyes would pop out if you suggested the two."

I was initially given .25mg XANAX by a top PsyDoc-due to sever GAD.

On returning to my GP, and he giving me scripts (as authorised) for 3x.25 Xanax). I asked about Clonaxepam-saying that i heard it lasted longer. I am SURE he made the mistake of scripting 2!!mg tabs 3x daily=6mgs Clonazepam/Klonopin, instead of the .5mg tabs.

Well he didn't want to be seen to be making an errror, so he continued with this, until i had quite a supply at one point, of Roche (R) brand Rivotril-perhaps 150-2mg tabs!

I was reffered to an agency (and seen by a bitter grumpy US PsyDoc) who seemed to think i should be weened off "THE DEMON TRANKS-HAHA) so began my 40mg a day of Diazepam (Valium) taper, :
-Actually .5mgs Clonazepam=10mgs Diazepam:

So I should have been started at 120mgs Diazepam really.

Today iam scripted 10mgs Valium daily, and i ran out early-always, unless my friendly Pharmacist makes a mistake and gives me double scripted or more (has happened)-God bless him, i can even go to him and 'borrow some tabs to see me thru':)

Two years ago I saw the same PsyDoc (a top man in his field, apparently) althought ittle concern for the complex case he say before him. he bought up ADD/HD issues, something i had never thought before, and started me on generic 10mg IR tabs of Ritalin 20mgs daily, over 2 years being scripted 20-80mgs daily.

I think i have outgroun the gen Rit, and wish a different treatment, so we'll see.

So it's Uppers, downers, ADs, Betablockers, alcohol.

Cheers
