I'm basically trying to figure out if I'm past the worst of the Suboxone withdrawal or is there still some Klonopin in my system making the symptoms minor.I mean I still get cold easily and can also get hot very easily but the RLS in my legs and my arms is almost non existent and it's been about 30 hours since I've last taken a Klonopin.

i did look that up yes   ...........how many days clean r u again.....kpins will def help with withdrawls but they will never in a million years make your dts go away completely so if your feeling better than my guess is your on the road to recovery

I'm 2 weeks plus clean from Suboxone and have taken 1 Klonopin at 8pm Wednesday night and Thursday night I'm also a night owl myself I'm from Cali but I live in New York it's 2:20am here right now which is 30 plus hours since my last Klonopin.Like you said I do still feel some symptoms but nothing major I really feel like I'm in the clear as far as the hardcore acute withdrawals go but I don't wanna get my hopes up then in a night or 2 everything comes back full force ya know?8-12 hours a night?That's great I'm happy for you and as far as being unemployed goes take your time you've been through some rough stuff and are still healing.

Well seems like you've been through a lot and some things that I can partially relate to but at least that's all behind you now.It's been 41 hours since I've taken any Klonopin and 2 + weeks since I've taken any Suboxone and I got about 4 hours of sleep last night/this morning so I guess the acute withdrawal is gone and I probably just have to deal with the PAWS and staying clean which I'm determined to do.I just feel like it's time to stop with everything from drinking to Suboxone.I agree the benzo's were a life saver during withdrawal even though I only had to take em for only 2 nights I just wish I've taken them before that I could've avoided the hell I went through but o well it's almost over now as far as bad withdrawals go but it will always be a battle trying to stay 100% clean but like I said I just feel like it's time.I got a newborn on the way plus 2 other little ones which I've always taken care of even when I was taking Suboxone and when I was sick and going through withdrawal.I wish you the best of luck in your recovery and life.
