    Therapy and cbt. Knowledge is power to manage  anxiety.

    Learn deep belly breathing. Bellybio app can teach you that.zero caffiene and try to eat balanced meals and keeo hydrated. Take a b complex vitamin daily and. Try to always find stuff to be grateful for no matter how small or little. That feeling of gratitude and thankfullness is the total opposite of the fear and anxiety so it feels good on the body. And walk walk and walk somemire. Very calming.

    at nught if it acts up chamomile tea is nice and passion flower tea will make you sleepy.

      Shame on your doctor that that eas the first choice of meds! Klonopin is great but better as needed. And a last resort unless tremors are involved. Thats a very addicting drug for first line use. I hope tess reads this. She can be of help here. Half of what dose? You can still have the tea love. Its fine

      You might not like this advice. But you have been on it two weeks. And i dont know half of dosage of what amount so..but if  you were only taking 0.125mgs (1/4 of a 0.5mg pill) once a day, then that is a very small dose and you should be ok to stop. If you were taking more than this on a daily basis then you may wish to taper off by reducing your daily dose by half for a couple of weeks before stopping. For other people who may read this, if you are taking a higher daily dosage of klonopin or any other type of benzodiazepine DO NOT stop abruptly. Anyway, there are other ways to manage stress without medication such as talk therapy with a counselor.

      You cant just stop. You have to taper this. The winthdrawl will be bad. So first call your gp and tell him you want off. Ask him if he knows how to taper it. And to tell you. Otherwise half the dose for two weeks. Ine fourt the oill instead of half...You cant just stop it. Its a potent drug. Wean off it so it goes smoothly.two week intervals. One pill stay in your system for ten days so you know, reread what i wrote you above. And call and tell your doctor. The best scenario is to get a osychiatrist asap and he will helo you wean off it and if needed replace it with a non addictive medicine.

      i know this isnt what you were looking for but im glad you came onto the forum. Now you know you cant stop this med cold turkey and have to taper it down. So you just saved yourself some very uncomfortable experiences.

      It's really sad to read things like this. Did your doctor prescribe you with anything else? A typical approach in your case would be to prescribe a SSRI with an anti-anxiety profile (e.g. paroxetine or sertraline) to be taken daily and also give you a long-lasting benzodiazepine (diazepam) to be used occasionally, when required. If clonazepam is all you got, I suggest seeing another doctor sad

      I AM reading it, in case anyone's interested.....

      Maria, is clonazepam the only medicine you were given? Please tell me what dose.

      Was it 0.5mg or 2mg?

      And yes, it is extremely addictive.

      Have as much camomile tea as you like, darling. And go and see a better doctor, ok? Clonazepam is NOT the first choice of medication here, my love. It would be a last resort, really.

      Keep us posted!

      Love Tess xx
