Klonopin & Prozac Questions . Going Off Xanax Xr .

Hey everyone. I hope you're having a great weekend.

I'm currently in the process of tapering off 3mg/day (taken as 1mg 3x/day) onto 2-3mg Klonopin. I'm also starting a whopping 1mg of Prozac daily. LOL I CANNOT tolerate Antidepressants anywhere near the therapeutic dose without it literally making me go nuts.

I started the Xanax XR/Klonopin change last Monday (July 2) and added the 1mg of Prozac today as so far my switchover has been going more smoothly than expected.

I have a couple of questions about Klonopin and Prozac:

1. Does the Klonopin tiredness typically go away after your body adjusts to it?

2. Does Klonopin tend to make one more depressed?

3. Has anyone found Prozac to be effected at 5mg/daily or less?

4. Does Prozac tend to help with anxiety after a while?

If anyone has any experience or answers to these questions, I would appreciate your sharing them as I've been on the Medication Merry-Go-Round BIG TIME for YEARS.

I hope to hear from someone soon as I actually have high hopes for this combo and really could use some help as I've been through SO MUCH!

Thanks everyone! Take care of yourselves and have a great day!

2.No,its just a myth.
3.Its very low dose and doesnot help in relieving depressive symptoms.
4.It doesnot help in relieving anxiety symptoms.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
