      Klonipin withdraw is awful.

      Im going through it now.

      Tried the cold turkey way and felt as though I was going to die.

      Tried detox but they only keep you 5 days. That's a joke. As soon as I got home withdraws hit again.

      I am now going down slowly. Switched from Klonipin 0.5 mg (took it maybe every other day for years but still got addicted) to valium 2 mg (0.5 mg Klonipin = 10 mg valium).

      I started with taking it twice a day. Two weeks later I dropped to 1.5 mg in am and 2 mg in pm.

      That dropped has put me in a little withdraw. Anxious and jittery but NOTHING like cold turkey. I will prob hold at that for about 3 weeks the. Go down a little again. So this process will probably take close to a year.

      Now I am also taking gabapentin that they say helps lesson the withdraw. It was started in detox. I don't know if it is helping or not but we shall see

      Bottom line. Klonipin cold turkey isn't something to be toyed with.

      Please be careful. Let us know how u are HUGS. I feel your pain

      Be careful.... Yes, once you get your prescription how you feel will stop.  The longer you take these meds, the harder it is to stop.  I'm going through a very uncomfortable time right now and probably will be for most of 2016
