visitation pill?

this may sound a little craaaazy, but is there a pill that i can take on the days that my step child visits (8 days/month) that will calm me? i dont think i need depression medication or anything cause i am fine the other days of the month. when the step child is with us i am grumpy/mean and it ruins our weekends. this has gone on for several years now and i dont wanna start drinking!
please dont just tell me to stop being a b*tch, ive tried for years now...

  • Clonazepam, generic for Klonpin. It has the same calming effect as Xanax, without making you tired. Is your step-child bad?

  • Klonopin, I meant.

  • Personally, I like Ativan. I've taken it for about 7 years now. It doesn't make me sleepy at all, but I take a low dose. It works well for me, but the only one I can get it from is my psychiatrist. The other docs just cannot stop themselves from the lecture on how addictive it is. They close their ears when I explain I take it as needed, hell, I have the same 30 pill Rx from August. And there are like 11 pills or so left. I am not addicted. Anywho, you'd need an anti-anxiety med. One that can be taken as needed, not one that has to build up in your system.

  • Everyone's different, honestly, because the PP was talking about how Klonopin doesn't make you tired, and I felt exhausted after I took it. Zanax works for me. Go talk to your dr about it, and see if he can prescribe you something. I'm sorry you're going thru this. I know how you feel about stepkids!!! ;) Good Luck!

  • Try a low dose of Benadryl. 25 mg will make you a little bit drowsy.
