Default Klonopin Increases Depression? (lithium depression anxiety)


Klonopin Increases Depression?

I have severe anxiety and depression (not sure what kind).

I am taking:

450 mgs of Effexor XR
4 mgs of Klonopin
60 mgs of Buspar

My pdoc just started me on lithium 150 twice a day two weeks ago, and
just increased to 300 mg twice a day. The pdoc mentioned adding lithium
could reduce my anxiety.

I mentioned to the pdoc to increase the Klonopin because I am still
having a lot of anxiety. The pdoc said if it was increased it would
increase my depression.

Has anyone every heard of this before?

Yes, its well known that all benzos like klonopin can worsen depression. Its a
strong central nervous system depressant drug.

euphoria, insomnia, mood swings, personality changes and severe depression, to
frank psychotic manifestations." Direct quote from prednisone monograph insert.
