> I was on klonopin at 10 mg per day for 3 years. I started with a new doctor and he had me come off it. Not only did I have "rebound anxiety," but I went through the most miserable hell imaginable. I could not eat or sleep, I could not relax, and I wanted to jump out of my skin. I had headaches, tremors, and generally felt lik hell for 2 months.
> There is no doubt in my mind that I went through withdrawal. My doctors didn't take me seriously at first, either. Some part of what I went through could be attributed to rebound anxiety, but the other symptoms were certainly withdrawal.

PLease do not ever let anyone remove your klonopin without tapering your dose reduction individually, everyone should taper off klonopin slowly even those who use it for epilepsy. Although the rate of tapering and the severity of withdrawl varies individually, everyone experiences it. NO Doctor especially a trained Pdoc should ever recommend abrupt discontinuation. Please use a psychotropic med handbook and listen to your body. Your 2 months in hell can be greatly diminshed with appropriate tapering. Remember, NO two people react to the same meds in the same way ,we are all different and require different dosing and different meds to achieve the same results. Prescribing the same dose of the same medication for each person is illogical and careless. Best wishes. I apologize for your bad experience even though your doc should. Micro
