Call up your doc today, and tell him what you said here. He may have some suggestions for you.
I agree...give your doctor a call.
Many times these tapers need to be taken ultra slowly to minimize withdrawal symptoms, which is what you describe to a "T". Understand that some steps down with the dose will be somewhat uncomfortable, it is hard to avoid SOME level of discomfort all together, but certainly taking the taper a little slower won't hurt and will probably make you feel much better. Express that to your doctor. Explain to him that you know you may have some rough moments, but the way you're feeling is not tolerable. Klonopin has a long half life, and cutting your dose in half is probably just a little bit TOO quick.
Many people say that the last .5 mgs of a Klonopin taper are the hardest. I definitely agree. When you get that low you really have to slow the whole process down. If you want to be successful don't rush it. Some doctors are very unrealistic with their taper expectations. You are the expert on how you feel. Make sure your doctor understands the severity of your symptoms. Really sorry you are going through this but I'm sure you'll hang tough and make it through.
Why do you have to go off the Klonpin? Were you taking it during the day? I take 1 mg every night and nothing during the day except my Wellbutrin. I'm curious to know how one distinguishes a withdrawal from the true anxiety symptoms that brought us here in the first place? Perhaps the Klonopin is needed to level everything out? Anyway, just wondering. I hope you feel better soon
I take Celexa, but I need a little Klonopin twice a day too. I've tried Celexa alone. It didn't take care of all the symptoms. I've tried Klonopin alone and it didn't work by itself either. Sometimes it has to be a combo.
