> Help please. I have been taking klonopin (.5mg taking one to two at bedtime) for almost a year.

I can only speak about your withdrawal from the Klonopin--not about the other drugs you mentioned, your pdoc's diagnosis, etc.

I'm not sure why he is not supportive of you quitting the Klonopin. If that's what you really want to do, then he should let you do it, and explain that it must be tapered very slowly. I'm in the process of tapering down from 1.5 mg, and it's going to take several months. Everyone experiences their withdrawal from benzo-type drugs differently, but it sounds to me that you tried quitting the Klonopin too fast and didn't taper slowly enough. After being on it for about a year, even at low doses, you'll have to be patient and do it slowly. If you want more info on how to go about this, then there are plenty of people on this board who can give suggestions, myself included.
