Benzo detoxer


Recommended Posts

I’m in week 5 of being Klonopin free after using for 6 months then tapering from .75 mg over 4 weeks in April. Maybe that was too fast but I followed orders without doing any research. I have bad days and better days, but nothing worthy of a good day. Maybe I’m over the worst which was some panic and trouble breathing, but now I’m losing feeling in my hands and feet and can barely exercise due to pain and swelling and random headaches. Not sure if I’m getting worse or better as every day is different and doctors are kind of clueless. Just going to keep my head up and hopefully work through this but damn it’s hard when you’re supposed to be the strong provider for your family and have to work regardless. After reading a few other posts I realize that many have it tougher than me, so God bless us all.
