I was given this med first back in the mid 80's before being dvd with fibromyhellgia.

I recently went to my doctor for my anxiety and depression, they placed me on prozac which of course takes awhile till I will feel the full affects. so in the interim, they put me on klonopin which did nothing for me because of the dosage, they then placed me on xanax which was working perfectly but i would have to take a few pills since they started me on half a mg. A few days later I had a horri ... Show Full Comment
