I have been tapering off Klonopin 1mg since October. I am now down to .125mg. The reason I decided to go off the Klonopin was because it was very drying. I started experiencing vaginal dryness very shortly after I started taking the Klonopin. I was getting re-occuring urinary tract infections monthly. Please note that I have a history of drugs affecting my urogenital area. At the end of 2002 I tapered off Paxil (after 3 years of use) because of its anticholinergic effects. I tried many antidepressants, only to find that they caused the same problem. My pdoc perscribed Klonopin for anxiety in Oct. 2002. I had no idea it was such a cunning drug. It affects almost every area of the brain, including the endocrine system. While tapering off, the vaginal dryness has ebbed and flowed, but has mostly been very debilitating. The withdrawl symptoms are much worse than the original problem. Has anyone else experienced this side effect, and if so, how long after withdrawl from Klonopin does it take to recover?
