An_190255 posted:
was on attivan which worked good 1mg for a month, then got switched to .5 klonopin for about a month was told to take it 24 hours after my last dose of attivan. klon didnt really work, felt a little bit of chest pain, just felt relief hours and almost the end of the day relief. so nurse practioner psych. swicthed me back to 1 mg attivan. and start it 24 hours after last dose of klon. was ths safe to switch back to it? Today the attivan feels ok but not like it did when i first used to use it. can this be because i have built up a tolerance. How do I safely take my attivan dose, and how do i taper correctly? my breathing is just so messed up, i feel like i cant breathe.

I don't know anything about meds as I'm not a doctor...but if you are having trouble breathing please go to the hospital. If it's nothing, then it's nothing. But if it isn't then the hospital is where you need to be.
