I am currently on a medication for panic attacks that i have been on for the past 2 1/2 years now called Klonopin. Before i was on it, i was freaking out all of the time and i felt as if i was losing my mind. I was told it was just a mild case of PPD at the time, and the panic would sbubside, but put on the med, and i have been seeing both a counslor and shrink ever since. Well, it's 2.5 years later, and i want to take charge of my life. I am tired of the medications side-effects: tiredness, forgetfullness, cronic fatigue. I think i have been in therapy long enough to cope with a panic attack without the medication. I have told my doctor this, and he has agreeded to slowly wheen me off of the medication, as i might have seizers if the medication is stopped too quickly. I'm terrified. I need to do this for me, my sanity, and for my family. I know i'm gong to, but it's scary. Has anyone gone through this? What am i to expect?Answer Question
