Two Months off klonapin!


[ca...]

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to let everyone know that I have been klonapin free for almost two months now! It took me a year to slowly withdrawal but I finally did it! I do still have some very, very mild withdrawal symptoms that haven't completely gone like slight electrical feelings in my body but only occassionally! Im getting ready to get off my antidepressant (effexxor) and sure could use some encouragement! Is there a good support group for coming off antidepressants since this is mostly for benzo users! Im getting excited for my new upcoming life. I do still have mild anxiety but am finding some natural supplements to be very helpful for that!

Congrats on being off Klonopin.  So nice to hear that your remaining symptoms are mild!

 

Good luck tapering off your a/d, from what I hear that is much easier than getting of the benzos.

Congratulations!!!  Tomorrow is day 50 Klonopin (or Clonazepam - both over the years) FREE for me too!  I'm also taking Effexor.  We have a lot in common.

 

I know what this ride has been like for you so far.  WAY TO GO!!!!    :thumbsup:

I was put on Effexor for "anxiety" which turned out to be tolerance withdrawal from benzos. When I got off after 4 weeks, Dr. said just stop and I did. Yucky for three days but no awful.
