Klonopin protracted withdrawal


Recommended Posts

Hi Steph here. 12 years daily 1 mg klonopin.

I tapered over 1 year. I have been struggling with agoraphobia for 2 years since I have been benzo free. Mostly homebound. Frequent panic attacks. CBT counselor comes to my house once a week. Have read books, taken online courses, still struggling. Before benzos only had mild anxiety. Started having agoraphobia the last 2 years of klonopin use. Got substantially worse when I stopped. Wanted to hear from others with protracted symptoms.

Hi  :) Welcome to BenzoBuddies!


I am glad you found us. What a wonderful CBT counselor to come to your house. I am sorry you are experiencing symptoms so far out from your use. This sometimes can happen and it is unfortunate.


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.


Here is a link to the protracted board. http://www.benzobuddies.org/forum/index.php?board=141.0

I think the protracted board will be a good place to start to connect with others in similar situations.


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:
