Severe anxiety and OCD after accidentally consuming too much THC edibles. Landed in ER. Long term anxiety and OCD sufferer.
Prescribed Lexapro, but till that kicks in I have .5mg of Klonipin to take. If I don't take it I am so anxious I am non-functional. If I do I am roughly fine. have been taking it for 10+ days, but am trying to keep to 0.25mg which seems to work. I'll taper even further, but worried I can become dependent.
Let me know what you think thanks.

Hi @pilepiper and welcome to the forum.

Sorry to hear about your anxiety and ocd.
Benzodiazepines(klonipin, diazepam, etc etc), if you don’t want to get addicted, shouldn’t be taken for 2 weeks straight. I got this confirmed by 3 doctors.
