Welcome to HCM
You have been suffering from Phobia
, and IBS. You had asthma attack about 4 year back, and now due to that attack when ever you have breathlessness you have fear of death. This is nothing but Anticipatory Anxiety. Now you are not able to handle the situation by your own. You were on zaptra 12.5 and it caused excessive sleep. Now you are on clonazepam
(epitril) which is anti anxiety at low doses but it may also cause sleepiness.
I would suggest you to visit your Psychiatrist
and take opinion regarding other medicines like Fluoxetine
, Sertaline. These medicines especially fluoxetine are very nice anti anxiety drugs as well as they also cover phobia. They don't cause sedation and sleepiness. In fact they are a little activating and are advised to take in morning only.
Please don't take undue stress and visit your Psychiatrist for opinion. Try yoga and relaxation exercises at home.
