Hi I would advise you to seek medical attention ASAP. I'm not sure how to answer your question as I have no experience with Klonipin. I do know that it should be tapered and not stopped abruptly. If she is experiencing heart pounding it is very important to get checked out by a physician ASAP. It could be just prolonged withdrawal or it could be something else, but as she is back taking low doses of the K- I don't know.
Best to seek medical care and check back with us okay?
Wishing you both the best...
Hi. Yes I would for sure talk with a DR.
I came off 3 meds and one of them was the Klons. Due to the Klons it made it a much worse detox then if it was just the Methadone, plus.
High Anxiety is normal in a detox, but the Benzos are very Bad and are worse. You have to do a nice slow taper or it can be dangerous. I did not realize how bad it could be, so I paid the price for going c/t.
I am not understanding this, if she wants to come clean or is just looking for a Dr who takes Medicaid.
If she is back on the Klons now this should calm down a bit.
In any w/d your Heart will pump and it can pump hard. They do have a Med they can give you during a detox to help this.
SO??? It is the question if she wants on or off of these.
Please forgive my ignorance. One day years ago I was on Clonidine for high blood pressure. The pharmacy gave me Clonipin accidentally and I was told it was an anti-seizure medication. If the medication is for a legitimate medical issue then you need to contact the pharmaceutical company that makes it. A lot of times they can either get you on a program they have so you can continue to get your medication or they can advise you on where to go to sign up so you don't have to go without your medicine.
I've done quite a bit of research on this after being prescribed Klonopin a few months ago. Stuff on the internet can be scary and indeed stopping abruptly can be dangerous. So the original dose was 2mg 3x per day and the doctor reduced it to .5 mg 3x per day - correct? How soon after stopping the 2 mg did withdrawals begin? Are you saying that you (she) actually feels worse after taking the .5 mg?
