Lately I've been feeling really depressed. Empty. Just this general lack of anything. Numb in a negative way. I feel agitated (sp?) a lot. Like right now I just feel major "BLAH"...like I want to throw something yet that's just not even worth it. I felt like this a lot through my early teen years and was on anti-depressants for quite some time. I'm not taking any now because the depression seemed to be gone and the meds were really just helping my anxiety and making me feel kind of numb and I didn't like it. So I started just taking xanax for anxiety as needed and gave the boot to the anti-depressants. I started taking Klonopin at the begining of this month and stopped the xanax quite a while back. I have thoughts of suicide but I'm not suicidal. I know that sounds wacky but I've talked to my therapist about it and she gets it. I don't want to kill myself or anything but I just have these thoughts sometimes. I could just stare at a blank wall all day and feel that empty negative nothing. Distraction just annoys me more. It's confusing so I doubt anybody will really understand this but I figured I'd give it a shot. Here's my big question. Has anyone ever had a problem with klonopin causing depression like this? I wasn't having these feelings at all before the Klonopin. Sure I had my bad days but nothing like this. The med is helping my anxiety and my sleep has been fabulous! Think this could be a side effect? I'm just completely confused and rather pissed off. Don't really know what to do about it. Thanks for listening.
