I feel that I am being attacked by using the words physical addiction. Physical addiction is different than an emotional and mental addiction.

It is ironic that you can buy Xanax, Klonopin, and valium on the street. But, they are not physically addictive? That's very odd.

The original post was how someone was suffering. Hardly anyone has addressed that. Instead they are choosing to attack me with words, because they don't like the terminology- "physical addiction". I have not seen anyone quote the medical research on Klonopin or it's horrible withdrawal. I am speaking from experience. What were the convulsions from? Why did the convulsions stop when the nurse gave me another Klonopin? Has anyone else here stopped using Klonopin for 5 years abruptly and seen what it will do?

I wasn't even talking about Paxil and Effexor. Yes, they too have horrible withdrawals. The body does become dependent. Again, I will use the term "physical addiction". Perhaps, you like physical dependency word instead. The words don't matter. People suffer from abrupt withdrawal. That was my point!

I suffer from depression and anxiety. I find this attack pointless and very sad. No one has addressed my feelings from having a horrible experience being abruptly taking off this med. The med in discussion is Klonopin!

I am not responding to anymore heartless attacks. Take your anger elsewhere. I am not your enemy. In fact, I am a fellow sufferer sharing my horrible experience. I pray that NO ONE goes thru what I did.

God Bless you all.
