Symptoms from Depo-Provera shot

Posted by meowrightmeow @meowrightmeow, Aug 11, 2018

I have been suffering from anxiety for quite some time. I went in to see a dr for it July 18 and they were more interested in giving me birth control than controlling the anxiety. I was put on the depo shot and now I feel like I’m losing my mind! Constant anxiety no matter what, random panic attacks. I got some help recently and was put on Clonazepam .25 twice a day and Prozac. I am taking the clonazepam twice a day and I don’t think it’s strong enough. The anxiety tends to break though. I have Ativan as well and that’s what I was using before for the panic attacks. 1mg I often cut in half. The dr did say I could use them together if I really needed to but I’m afraid to. Anyone else have similar troubles?
