Sorry, I forgot to address your dizziness/vertigo. When you say you are "familiar" with the withdrawal literature remember that the range of information is huge and you might not have mastered all of it. I certainly haven't and I am still learning. However, I have found references to dizziness and vertigo in relation to Klonopin either as due to withdrawal or as an "adverse effect." Of course, adverse effects may develop during withdrawal and not when you are taking a regular dose.

Re Klonopin's adverse effects on the CNS (central nervous system) these are some: " Other adverse reactions involving the CNS have included nystagmus, unsteady gait, slurred speech, dysarthria, vertigo, insomnia, and diplopia. Isolated reports of akinesia, hemiparesis, tremor, hypotonia, headache and choreiform movements have been received."(

In view of the foregoing clear reference to vertigo ("unsteady gait" may be partly dizziness) and other references I have found to dizziness, it is quite possible that your problems are withdrawal related.

You could increase the dose, as was suggested, and see if these symptoms disappear. However, that could affect the progress you have made because you would have to taper down again. Two other suggestions I have are: 1) check with a physician to ensure that the dizzines/vertigo isn't due to some other problem 2) try taking some of the aminos mentioned and/or other supplements which might alleviate the symptoms.

Good luck,
