    Yes to all of the above. I stopped taking it 5 days ago and the withdrawals have been miserable.

      I hate to say it but it's probably withdrawals. I used it for 3.5 months. Prior I had some insomnia & anxiety issues due to crazy life circumstances but NOTHING like what Trazodone did to me. I also have had a brain MRI, neurology referral and endocrinology referral. I wish I never touched this stuff!

      no wayy you had mri as well, lol..short time as well to hay! welll i had been on zopincone for about a month and then doc said quit cold turkey and put me traz for almost 2 months, so maybe thi si the problem. i am in rough shape and havent touched zoplicone in 2 months and traz almost a month..i actually just finished with neurologist, she is doing angiogram, mri on my spine and wants me to take another anti depressant for tension headaches and i aint touching that for sure..did you have any TIA symptoms like headaches and then body gets weak on one side or numbness of hands or feet, pin n needles on finger tips? i am just trying to figure this out

    I took months to come off traz, and still had terrible withdrawals. This is a devil drug

      Do you feel better now that you're off of it? I am hoping there's light at the end of the tunnel because at 6 days cold turkey it's pretty rough! 😕

      You have to remember I weaned off traz and clonezepam. Mu weaning in total was 9 months. and i am now just about 1 year off. I still go through waves and windows. This is day 3 of a wave, but prior to that I had a 6 day window which was wonderful.

      Yes I do feel better, but it has been a very long road.

      Thank you, but the weaning off for 9 months, and now being post 12 months have really has been the hardest thing I have ever done. Doctors do not believe that withdrawals can still be going on at 12 months post. They have no idea.

      Well, I truly wish you the very best. It is not the easiness thing to do, \just go really slow. I know it seems forever, and it is easy to tell yourself that speeding the process gets you off quicker.....but it is the worst thing to do. I spent more time coming off the traz and not enough time coming off the Clon, and I am paying for it still.

      Just please when you start, make sure that when you are dropping the dose, you make sure you are ready for it. If your plan is for example every 2 weeks, and you have not stabilized, then stay on the dose until you are.

      Dec 9th will be a year off clon for me. So that is about 18 months into the whole nightmare. Never want to do this again.....and I won't !!!!
