I was originally placed on Lexapro 20 mg, Klonopin 1 mg and Seroquel 100 mg in December of 2011, 3 month's before my mother passed away to help with depression, sleep and anxiety. I stayed on these for 2 year's when I decided I no longer needed to be medicated. I tapered all 3 at the same time by cutting them in half, waiting a few month's and then in half again.

Then, in March, my now 7 year old started having panic attacks. I knew that I never wanted her to suffer as I have and have been getting her through them with meditation and dietary changes. Currently I take 1.5 mg of xanax nightly and anytime during the day when I need it. That can be anywhere from
User87222 posted a topic in Introductions and updatesLong story short, my primary doctor had some sort of medication plan for me, then due to a family emergency moved upstate and left her practice. Now I'm stuck dealing with several doctors who have either given me medication that had harmful side effects (100mg of Trazodone on top of my other medication spiked my blood pressure so high it nearly killed me), or doctors who want to completely take me off of the medication I'm currently on (no tapering) and switch me directly over onto something in a completely different drug class. It seems the best course of action would be to just taper off of
