> 2 mg/day of Klonopin is not a lot; probably less than average for panic. Did your symptoms have a sudden onset? Have you changed your dosage of Klonopin lately? Are you using a different brand? Your symptoms also sound like the flu and it's flu season. You don't say anything about panic along with those symptoms. If the Klonopin's been working for you at that dosage for 8 years it would be surprising for it all of a sudden to cause that kind of reaction.

I totally agree with this assessment. You are at a relatively low but theraputic dose. Brands DO make a difference - trust me. There is no oversight as to the actually dosage that goes into these drugs that can vary up to 20% either up or dowmn - not to mention their storage in transport or in pharmacy.

If these are the symptoms that you remember from anxiety I would up the dose or change brands to see what happens. Sometimes anxiety fluctuates and what we perceive as withdrawl is simply the symptoms not being under control by a heightened underlying anxiety.
