I guess each of us must do whatever we feel is best for us. I mentioned I had tried Gabapentin but was unable to tolerate it. It didn't cause bowel issues, but did make me very dizzy and I had problem staying awake when seated. It also caused me to feel ill. I wasn't on it as long as most because the side effects were too problematic for me.
I want to be as "clear headed" as possible, and too many medications make me "foggy" ~ not good!
I had written earlier I have reduced the amount of Clonazapam I was taking to one-half and my tremors are much worse, but I prefer to deal with tremors rather than side effects. At this point, I am not sure how I will react if/when I am no longer on any medication. I may be unable to walk; we will see.
I have great difficulty walking at this point and suffer severe cramps in my feet and legs. I think they occur because I must "grip" with my toes when trying to stand and walk. I do hope if/when you try Clonazapam you will have no side effects and will find it helpful to you.
Also, it was good to read you are back to your "usual happy and optimistic self". That is SO important, as you know.
Do keep us informed as to how you are doing, we all care.
