In reply to BENZODIAZAPINE WITHDRAWL...please help!!!, posted by jodsteroo on May 29, 2001, at 2:33:26

> has anyone gone through a benzo withdrawl? i tapered slowlet but still getting extreem withdrawl symptomed and its been almost a month since i stopped klonopin at 1/8th of a having extreem muscle tension and headaches...and tons of other psysical symptomes... has anyone else gon through this and if so how long did it last before you felt better?

It took me a long time to get off valium. It's not easy. I didn't have headaches or muscle tension. I had REM flooding. I had so much REM sleep it was exhausting. I think it took about 3 months to get through and my pdoc had me on depakote. I tried tapering off without another med and it never worked. Valerian root helps take the edge off too if you can get past the smell(even the capsules stink) Try to go easy on yourself. In rehabs, you need more time to get off benzos than to get off heroin.
