My withdrawal

5 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Sup. I have being taking clonazepam for about 8 months now, on dosages 0,5mg twice a day and more if needed.

 

Recently I decide it to quit this medication. It's been a week since I'm only taking 0,2mg twice a day, and now I want to just take 0,2mg at the evening until I can quit forever.

 

I have being feeling very anxious, but I guess that will pass with time? Or I'm tapering off too quickly?

You're tapering off too quickly.  I made the mistake of guessing on my own taper schedule and I suffered for it.  

 

Good luck, Spartan.  I wish you a speedy withdrawal.

When I weaned down on Klonopin it took a very long time.  I went from about 3 mg/day to 0.5 mg/day but it took about 4-5 months at least.

 

Also, maybe you are anxious because your body needs the klonopin to help to not be anxious, and weaning down isn't helping.  Just something to think about.

When you just get sick of the medication and you just make up your mind and don't focus on the withdrawals. It makes it alot easier but, I have been on it for 4 yr;s and I just got sick of it..

 

 

But this is just me opinion and deliverance from the drug...I hated the way it was making me feel...And in a weird way the ritalin takes my anxiety away...
