Hey how's it going.


Recommended Posts

My doctor pulled me off of klonopin too fast. I haven't had any in a week but he called me in some Librium. I have an appt with him in about 10 days and need to be Informed and prepared to have a schedule to go with. Withdrawal is killing me right now.

Hello Ninjaturtle, and welcome to the forum! I'm sorry you find yourself in this situation, but unfortunately, many doctors don't seem to understand the value of a slow taper.


You'll find plenty of information and support here.  Our members have gone through all aspects of withdrawal, and you're likely to see  people who understand what you're going through and can tell you what has worked for them.  For those who are currently tapering, we suggest reducing no faster than 5-10% every 10-14 days.  One exception: very short-term users of a few weeks or less may be able to taper faster than that.


Here are a few links you may find useful:


Withdrawal Support Board


The Ashton Manual is an authoritative source on what to expect in withdrawal and recovery.  Dr. Ashton is an expert in the field.  She describes and explains withdrawal symptoms in Chapter III, and there is also a section with withdrawal/taper schedules.


Please take the time to Create a Signature.  This will allow others to see where you are in the process so they can better support you.


Again, welcome!
