Jay1 Posted March 22, 2011 Report Share Posted March 22, 2011 Over the years, I've tried a varied range of medication with some good and bad experiences. I can't remember the specifics of each, but will try and go over the important ones... Please note that these are personal experiences and everyone differs.... so tread carefully and consult your doctor. Prozac - awful, terrible anxiety, increase in visual problems. 5HTP - Seems to improve mood, with no side effects. Keppra - worked well, lowered visuals around 20% and also anxiety, dp/dr issues. (stopped taking after I had a problem losing my supply of Keppra while traveling, major flare up from stopping abruptly). Would consider trying again. Melatonin - Helps induce sleep, with no side effects. Pregabalin - Didn't seem to do anything, no side effects though. Phenobarbital - reduces anxiety slightly, potentiates Klonopin. Klonopin - reduces anxiety and visuals by around 70% at a dose of 2mg. So, what do I do now?? Currently, I have a system that seems to work pretty well for me. Along with healthy food and lots of exercise: Friday - 0.5mg klono / 100mg phenobarbital Saturday - 0.5mg klono / 100mg phenobarbital Sunday - 2mg klono Monday - 1mg klono / 100mg phenobarbital This gives me quite alot of relief over a 4 day period, then I clean my system for 3 days. Knowing I have another relaxed weekend coming keeps me sane and calm during the week. I also have a 7 day break from both drugs at the end of each month, to avoid addiction/tolerance. Please note that both these drugs are strong CNS depressants with well known down sides and should be mixed only at the advice of your doctor.
