Going to nuero on Friday

I need some advice
I’ve had a drinking problem since I was 16
My neurologist put me on Copaxone and the anxiety was like 9 million so it caused me to drink more and you put me on 2 mg of Klonopin three times a day so it also caused me to take more Klonopin
I haven’t seen my psych doctor in a long time so my primary care physician opt my Depakote from twice at night to three times a day 250mg
My question is what do you think I should tell my neurologist should I be honest and tell him that I have been drinking on the Klonopin and not taking the Copaxone or should I just go in normally and tell him that the compaxone is not working it’s giving me way too much anxiety and it caused me to have to take more Klonopin?
Because beer and alcohol is almost out of the question I drink maybe a six pack once a week now so my question is what do you think I should do?
If I mention beer at all he’s going to take me off the Klonopin and I need to be on that because my nerves excuse my French f****** hurt.
So I think I’m just going to tell him that the Copaxone is causing me way too much anxiety and I need to be switch to something else and my primary care physician is trying to wean me down from the Klonopin
My neurologist has me on 2 mg of Klonopin three times a day and somehow in that tornado of b******* I wound up on 3 mg 3 times a day

I think you need to be absolutely honest with all of your physicians about what and how much you are drinking and the meds you are taking. They aren’t going to be able to help get you the right combinations off meds to help otherwise.

@milton_mount_jr_ , I totally agree with @melanie_grace , you won’t get the right treatment if it’s based on lies and half-truths. You won’t be doing either of you any favours.
