← Return to My clonazepam story: More regulation seems to be coming

Comment receiving replies

I said a couple of years ago that I dealt with the challenge of juggling MS contin and Klonopin prescriptions. I still have a prescription for 1mg of Klonopin bid, but I take 1/2mg in the morning and 1 at bedtime. But I got really tired of the hassle of dealing with Ms contin, so I tried buprenorphine with no success and now I'm trying Topamax - not sure how much it's helping. I wish I could go back to the ms contin that actually treated my pain. Then my neurologist and pain specialist wouldn't have to keep trying new meds on me. But about the Klonopin - there's been no indication from any of my doctors that there is coming a restriction on it. My mail order (Center Well Pharmacy, formerly Humana Pharmacy) takes care of getting it refilled every month and mailed to me on time .

Have to stop for a video appointment with the pain specialist.

You may indeed have a problem with the Klonopin should your current doctor retire, die or move. Due to pressure from the DEA doctors are just not prescribing benzodiazepines like they used to. Finding a new doctor to prescribe could becomes very problematic. Beware. The various benzo forums are full of people that this is happening to right now. The doctors now now are shifting to antidepressants and antipsychotics to deal with anxiety.
