Hi, Thanks for allowing me to register and join, I have been on .5 klonopin for 5 years, and was rapidly tapered by doc from May 4th-June 2nd 2016, and now am suffering terribly, no sleep, terror, fear 24/7, now have dp/dr, no taste, no smell, just  terrible w/d symptoms, it's brutal and unbearable now, and I need support, guidance and a general understanding of what's going on in my brain.

Thank you in advance for accepting me into this group, Note:

Hi  PacingTigress  :hug: Welcome to Benzobuddies


We are glad you joined BB, you will get plenty of support here.  I am sorry you’re having a rough time, withdrawal symptoms are awful but they will go with time.  It will get better I promise you, I know its tough right now but these symptoms are temporary.  It can take some time for the CNS to recover. 


Are you familiar with Prof Ashton’s manual, as well as taper advice, she describes and explains withdrawal symptoms.

I will put a link to the Ashton manual here for you: Professor Ashtons Manual


Feel free to post to any of the dedicated boards.  We have a wonderful community of people here.  Our members have been through all aspects of benzodiazepine use and withdrawal and are more than willing to share their experiences.


We do have a dedicated board for those people who have done a cold turkey or rapid withdrawal.  You can connect with others there who are in the same situation as you are: Cold Turkey Detox & Rapid Withdrawal Board


Here is link to the Post withdrawal support Post withdrawal recovery support board


Take a look at the Success Stories, it will get better with some time. Success Stories


If you would be so kind as to add a signature (history of meds/doses etc) it will help members give you relevant advice this link will show you how to Create a signature


Please let us know If you have any questions.


Welcome Aboard
