I had taken Klonopin for several years and was brave enough to tell my PC physician about disturbing and dark thoughts. She prescribed Valium and I no longer had those disturbingly, dark thoughts. Everyone reacts differently to medications. Due to all of the drama over the use of controlled substances T
the PcCP can no longer prescribe a controlled substance. I have strong panic attacks and was only taking the Valium PRN. I now have ceased doing the things I was doing and avoid situations that trigger anxiety (i.e. PTSD). Is what it is…can't change it, can't fix it. At times anxiety is overwhelming.
Are we weak because of anxiety???? Are we weak when we, at times, need medication?
Needing medicinal aide must be a weakness. 🙁
