How to Overcome Klonopin Withdrawal Symptoms

UPDATE:

First of all – I want every reader of this site that is going through Xanax or Klonopin withdrawal symptoms – or just plain side effects – please send me an email about what you are going through and I will post it on my site – only with your permission. Here is my e-mail address – you can click on it: MShrigley@gmail.com.

There is now a new addition to this website – it is my Klonopin Blog – (the new 2012 blog is out) – I will start writing weekly about what is going on – DAILY – in my life. I will talk about every little symptom that I am experiencing and what I am doing to overcome it – at least temporarily. I believe in the long run, self-hypnosis will help me overcome this. Also, what I am aiming to do is actually not been done by anyone else that I know of. Prepare my mind by visualizing myself getting off of Klonopin (this will be done by self-hypnosis). In other words, actually seeing myself live my life happily without Klonopin or Xanax – and then actually quit. I am expecting not to have any withdrawal symptoms…so it will be sort of a mind over matter type of thing.

So tune in at least once a week to see how I am doing. We’ll see if I can actually do this. However, in the mean time (and as I said before), I will be writing about my daily symptoms that keep popping up in my life.

Note: Before reading the main part of this web page – if you are here to overcome klonopin withdrawal symptoms, you have come to the right place. However, if you are here to find out information about taking Klonopin or Xanax (or any Benzo medication for that matter) – then please read this warning:

Klonopin or Xanax are dangerous psychological medications. Once you become addicted to them ? your mind will never be right. Why the medical community in this country or Europe isn’t talking about this – I really don’t know. I’m assuming they are in bed with the drug companies – so I guess money is the bottom line and not people’s health. Klonopin has been said that it is worse than Cocaine addiction. I have never taken any type of “illegal” drugs, but I have taken Xanax and switched to Klonopin and know what these two types of medications are all about. I read documents all the time about doctors pushing these meds onto people – and now we have an epidemic. Once a person takes Klonopin or Xanax every day – there is memory loss, mind fog, dizziness, nausea, skin crawling and so much more. DO NOT TAKE THESE MEDS! THEY ARE DANGEROUS AND WILL TURN YOUR LIFE UPSIDE DOWN. CONSIDER YOURSELF WARNED!!! Now onto how to overcome Klonopin and Xanax withdrawal symptoms.

You are probably here because you one day went to a doctor and you were going through a rough time in your life. Maybe you had social anxiety – or possibly panic attacks. Whatever the reason, your doctor gave you either Klonopin or Xanax – or some other type of Benzo medication. Well now you know there is something wrong. Welcome then. Within this website – I will show you how to overcome withdrawal symptoms. You have a long road ahead of you my friend, so don’t get in a rush to get off these meds. Also – I will be referring mostly to Klonopin, but any benzo drug like Xanax will be discussed. I have been on Xanax before I switched to Klonopin, so I know what both medications does to a person (check out my Klonopin and Xanax Withdrawal Story). So feel free to try any technique that I have written about that is listed under “What Works” heading that is located on the left hand side of this website.

Xanax withdrawal as well as Klonopin withdrawal is very tough to overcome. Once you start tapering off any benzodiazepines, you will suffer one or many types of symptoms that will make you beg to go back taking your original amount of Klonopin (or Xanax). However, it doesn?t have to be that way. There are numerous things you can try in order to relieve your symptoms and over a period of time ? you can go back to living a normal life ? even if you are still taking Klonopin or Xanax.

If you are on Xanax, I will suggest (after you check with your doctor) that switching from Xanax to Klonopin is the path to go on if you want to start tapering off. The thing that you have to remember is to stay persistent and never give up the good fight. Never drift, in other words, don?t keep on going through life like these symptoms are normal. You need to alter your state of mind to keep your life productive. Also, try to stay away from alcohol and other medications that could make the symptoms even worse.

Klonopin and Xanax Withdrawal symptoms can seriously wreck a person’s life. However, within these pages of this website – I will show you that it is possible to relieve these Benzo withdrawal symptoms as well as how to taper slowly off these dangerous medications. In cases I have read and people that I have talked too, everybody that is on Klonopin wants to go cold turkey. This is one way you should never try. Your mind and body is used to taking Klonopin every day and when you take it away, there will be withdrawal symptoms that you have never felt in your life. Your body will get weak and sick while your mind will take you down a winding road that leads to a hell on earth. DO NOT DO THIS! You will not be able to function at all. I think that people think that the quicker you do this (by starving the body of Klonopin) – the faster they can get over it. Nothing could be further from the truth. Studies have shown that when people go cold turkey – there could be permanent consequences. When you slowly taper off this medication, you give your body time to readjust to the lower amount of Klonopin that you are taking in. There will still be withdrawal symptoms and it will take a long time to kick it – but in the end, you will win.
