Thank you for taking the time to share your story with. Damn, I know the struggle. It’s been 18 months since I wrote this story. After trying a mood stabilizer that didn’t prove to help my doc increased my dosage of Lexapro and now I take .5 mg of Klonopin daily instead of as a PRN. For the most part I feel good. I go through waves but they are not nearly as bad as they were. I couldn’t imagine going off the Klonopin. I think I’d stop sleeping. That’s irrational to wean you in such a short span of time, in my opinion. I wish you the best of luck. I’m here if you want to reach out.
