Taking my first steps


Recommended Posts

I am currently 11 days into my CT withdrawal from 6mg Klonopin a day. I tried to CT detox off 3mg in Feb for my family and husband and guilt I felt but not for MYSELF. Thank God.. My angels.. Or a higher power that even thou I relapsed and went back and doubled my dosage 2mths clean that this time it was only two month's using and my body was rejecting the drug completely. I knew it was my life on the line and if I didn't get this out of my body it was going to cost me my life. I know what I'm doing is dangerous but something is pushing me and this feels right. I want to be ME again

Hi  :) Welcome to BenzoBuddies!


Congrats on being benzodiazepine free. I did three CT detoxes myself.  CT withdrawals are ill advised for a number of reasons.  One of them is that it can be dangerous, but the biggest risks are typically the few days.  I am not quite sure why you doubled your dosage. That seems like a drastic increase over just a few months. Also, a second CT is often more difficult than the first so your acute period may bring you some pretty rough symptoms.  However, marked improvement is typically felt past that.  We have quite a few members who have done CT detoxes so I think this will be great place for you to connect with others who share similar experiences.


You might like to check out The Ashton Manual it is an authoritative source on what to expect in withdrawal and recovery.  Dr. Ashton is an expert in the field. 


Please feel free to post to any of the dedicated boards, we have a wonderful community of people here, who will give sound advice. Members have been through all aspects of benzodiazepine use and withdrawal and are more than willing to share their experiences.
