In Painful Withdrawals


Recommended Posts

My name is Lisa and I have been prescribed benzos off and on since 1986. Currently cold turkey from 1mg a day of Klonopin and haven't slept the past 3 nights. Never had a problem until I was prescribed Klonopin. I can't taper because I don't have a prescribing doctor anymore. How can I get some sleep?

Hello Poppea, welcome to BenzoBuddies,


How long ago did you stop cold turkey, how are you feeling besides the loss of sleep, is there someone there with you?  You can continue with this cold turkey or you can try to find another doctor to help you do a slow taper if its your wish to get off the drug.


Please let us know a little more about your situation so we can help you.  I wanted to let you know I quit cold turkey and while it was pretty bad I was able to recover and you can too if you decide to continue with this cold turkey.


I'll provide some resources and links to help you navigate the forum but please let us know how we can help you.
