clonazepam and modafinil (provigil)

Posted by cactus on March 28, 2008, at 17:54:14

Big hi to all my old buddies still around!!!!!!!!

I don't drop by much these days but I have found another great combo for me at the moment. Due to various diagnoses over the last 13 years, most of which were so wrong, it's not funny, 3 solid conditions have been established. GAD, and more recently, sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome. When the GAD gets out of control it can lead to severe bouts of depression which I don't think would surprise anyone here.

So my GP and sleep doc took a new approach and I ditched my old pdoc of 4 years. They placed my on a high dose of clonazepam to sort out my GAD first and foremost (it also works for restless leg syndrome like nothing else) and then they introduced modafinil for excessive daytime sleepiness for my sleep aponea (and no large doses of clonazepam don't make me tired at all, benzo's never really have) and it's working wonders
Now I'm tapering my clonazepam back, I'm down to 5mg a day and I'm looking at getting it down to 1mg or even 0.5mg to keep my restless leg under control.
It's also an experiment to see how my GAD goes because they were worried that modafinil will make me more anxious which it hasn't at all so far. Being tired all day really stresses me out so maybe the modafinil will work out to be a great solution for me, who knows, it seem to be working great so far but I'm fully aware of the fact that it's still early days.
