Hi Lisa!

I'm happy that you have new meds that might help w/ the anxiety!

My sister takes Klonapin for anxiety in addition to a 'coctail' of anti-d's for clinical depression. She swears by it! The great thing about it is that, if you're close to an anxiet attack? It kicks in pretty quickly, or so she's said.

I used to take Ativan for anxiety....and she's taken both. She said they're quite similar in how they work for her. I know ativan helped me through some very rough times when I was getting divorced!

Good luck to you [img]http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/love1.gif[/img]
