I am sorry you are having issues with Clonazapam. It is common to experience the hallucinations when one tapers to fast. Consider re-evaluating your taper speed & percentage. We recommend 5-10% every 10-14days.

Hello greenrobin, Josh here.

The holicinations can be extremely troubling. I always describe it as having a bad trip. Weird coincidences happen or maybe it's just the repeat looping thoughts, whatever it is its brutal. I didnt leave my house for days on end I was afraid of water for whatever reason I thought I'd drown in the shower, just standing near it I would have full blown panic attacks, so needless to say my physical health deteriorated rapidly. I wouldn't use water on my toothbrush even when I did brush my teeth because of the tooth pains, I tried emptying my toilets out, any viable waterline was sealed off, funny enough theres a small lake outside of my window, and that. That was not good. I blamed that on my sleeplessness, I'd move my bed so it didnt face the window. I was in serious trouble. Eventually, luckily my mom came to check on me as I wouldn't answer the phone because of auditory holicinations or the volume being so unbearably loud. When she saw me she knew she had to call the ambulance and she did. I was so paranoid I was convinced the hospital was going to euthanize me, I thought at first they'd drown me in the little lake outside my house, but once they hooked me up to a bag with water in it..oh no. so those iv fluids I needed so badly rarely made it into my body. The hospital gave me whatever it was I needed and brought me back around. I haven't really been the same since, when I take the benzos it's a relief kind of on one hand, but also a curse in the other.

My recommendations mean little as I'm in the same boat with you, only my boat seems to have a leak in it.

Klonopin are thought to be one of the "stronger" benzos, where valium isn't as potent. Maybe switching over could help make tapering easier as .25 is such a small dose its hard to cut that down. An equivocal dose of .25 clonazepam is around 3.8 mg valium (diazepam)

I hope my horror story helps? Idk if it can lol, but I felt like connecting. What you are experiencing is normal. It's a natural response from our body. It does get better, this I know. But at the time it always seems like it will be like this forever.
