In reply to withdrawl from Klonopin, posted by sheebies on August 25, 2003, at 8:54:49
thanks to some huge needs for a release from anxiety and several other things i have gone back on benzos 3 times. usually at a fair size dose (different every time). the withdrawals every time have been worse. even the last time i was just on a few months and that was bad. i just tried a few remedies and nothing really took the bad away except for more of the same i suppose but benzos are not something you can taper off of. i got through it and last month i had my usual bad christmas. the one before my wife kicked me out christmas eve and this christmas my first girlfriend since my wife divorced me decided things were moving too fast cut the relationship off. i saw my doctor the day after it happened because i could feel the way things were going. by the time i got to him the anxiety was eating me. now i am slipping to depression. the anxiety was so bad it might have driven me to something bad since i was just away from my wife for 6 months. he again tried to push the benzos on me. i insisted on buspar. it is working fairly well on the anxiety so it might be an alternative to klonopin to people who need it for that.
