My son was prescribed Flouxetine (30 mg per day) and Clonazepam (.75 mg 3X per day) when he was admitted to psychiatric hospital. He had never been medicated before and these two medications have worked very well for him. I get the feeling that his peds doctor isn't thrilled about the clonazepam, however, when you are admitted to a psychiatric hospital with no history of medications and are diagnosed with a deep anxiety, the psychiatric hospital docs are all about stablizing for the moment. Since they are working so well, I think peds doctor decided to go with it for now. Clonazepam is a short term medication. We tried reducing this in December but his anxiety just increased so we left it as it is. We will start reducing when school is over with the goal of being totally off by September. If he has problems, we will look at a different medication or increase Flouxetine - we still have room to increase if needed. My concern is that this last summer/fall before these medications, difficult child was experiencing seeing spots. These are possibly a symptom of a seizure disorder because of their length (2 -3 seconds). We were suppose to have a 48 hour EEG to try to "catch" a seizure. I cancelled it because 1. He has not had this symptom since February, 2. I have read that Clonazepam controls seizures so feel if there is anything, the clonazepam may be controlling it and 3. I wanted to wait until he was off Clonazepam to see if the symptoms return before doing the 48 hour EEG. On Sunday, difficult child saw spots again - his body became weak also. I noticed it was about noon and just took a mental note to add it to my journal (don't want to scare him so didn't make a big deal of it). Then, at 1:00, I realize that we forgot his morning medications. So, I am wondering if that contributed? He is not to go "cold turkey" when coming off Clonazepam, but would being 5 hours late cause this? Today, difficult child called me right after 10:00 am. He said, "I almost saw spots." "What does that mean? How do you know if you almost saw spots?" "Because my head feels funny right before I see the spots." This is the first time that he has told me that he has a symptom before the spots. Have any of you had a similar experience? Any insight? I will document it on the therapist form that questions medication, however, it is the neurologist I will need to take him back to earlier than his July appointment if this continues. I need to go back to check my introductory thread. Maybe there is advice there that I need to revisit.
