Just started it and already my anxiety is doing better.
Clonazepam is a good medication.
Lasts all day, and isn’t as addicting as other benzos.
I’ve been on .5mg twice a day for a long time.
I take .75mg for my insomnia. It’s been working wonderfully. I don’t wake up during the course of the night.
I started taking Klonopin several months ago, and when I first took it my mind was a lot calmer, but now I don’t notice it, except when I forget to take it I won’t sleep.
I’m withdrawing from it. It’s hell, I’m shaky, jumpy and making real bad loose connections. Can’t follow a logical conversation, or hold my attention
How long has it been since you stopped?
I stopped Saturday night
What does where you on an for how long?
.5-1mg prn since 2014. Every day since December
I started getting bad cognitive things happen to me, and I don’t want dementia when I get older
Well, i don’t know that what you are doing is safe.
But to each their own.
You should really taper off according to a schedule set by your doc.
Klonopin withdrawal can be brutal.
I wish you luck.
But please ask your doc for withdrawal medication if it gets too bad, there are meds to help.
Thanks, my therapist always convinces me to stay on it, and I feel crappy when I leave there when I don’t have it in my system. What’s the med? @nfy
They won’t let me post the med
Here is an article that lists the med I am talking about.
I have 1 otc med on the list and 2 scripts so I have to make a decision, thanks for that site
I wish you the best.
I know it is a hard thing to do.
Since June 2014. It was a relief at first, and I slept 10hours after spending 3months only getting 2-3hrs of sleep. I couldn’t believe how clear my mind was! After years, it started doing the opposite.
It effects memory so bad, I used to be able to recall a whole week. For a couple years now, I lost that ability.
I really like it. I take it at night for sleep and anxiety (my symptoms are bad at night). I’ve been on it a little over a year and I’ve had no problems with it. The only difference is now I don’t notice it. It’s like I never took anything. If I forget is the only time I feel anything.
Klonopin/clonazepam is great for short term usage, that’s great you’re feeling better.
