3 weeks of benzo free


Recommended Posts


  I am brand new to this so I may need some help., today is my 3 week Mark of being klonopin free. I, like many others had no clue what that nasty drug could do ..I am looking for some insight and some pep talk to how long will I feel rotten?. I have a tightness in my  throat, difficulty swallowing, ringing in my ears, and waves of hot and burning, tingling in my arms and legs., I have off and on crying spells., but I am able to work, drive, and do a little of going out to the stores. I am a wife and mother and a Christian., the main things that have gotten me to this point are family and Faith., I just need a little help on what to expect and for how long maybe.? Please help me. Thank you..

Hi  :) Welcome to BenzoBuddies!


Congrats on being benzodiazepine free. Unfortunately there's no crystal ball that can predict what symptoms one will have or for how long they will have them. To me that is one of the things that makes this process so difficult, the unknown.


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.


Members discuss their symptoms on the Post withdrawal recovery support.


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!  :smitten:
