> Some of what's happening I can attribute to benzodiazepine withdrawal, the addiction psychiatrist has taken me down to 0.25mg of Klonopin twice a day, which is causing me to feel dissociated, anxious, and ruminate a hell of a lot. Because I've been on one benzo or another for 15 years I'm beginning to wonder if going off of them at all is wise. I've heard it can take years. I can't endure years of this... and I still haven't gotten it out of my system completely!

Trileptal (oxcarbazepine) to ease the withdrawal from benzodiazepines?

There is also a lot of evidence that Trileptal can ease alcohol withdrawal.
