Re: Help! KLONOPIN,ZOLOFT&SEROQUEL WITHDRAWL
Hi! I'm new here, and well, maybe this can help you: I read a lot here today and one guy said that when you take also meds such zoloft, prozac, the anti dep., that what can happen when you start to cut down on the klonopin or any other benzodiazepine is more severe withdrawal symptoms because the zoloft has those side effects : agitation, anxiety,eyc.. so it'd really make sense to think that taper off the zoloft first would be a good idea. I take klonopin and am just starting to cut down , will do very slowlly.
I heard that zoloft is a medication which can produce strong anxiety feelings, so getting off a tranquilizer with its withdrawal symptoms plus zoloft might be too hard, but thsi is what I read from other people here.. Klonopin withdrawal is not easy but it's not horrible for everybody.. do you know the Ashton manual? If not, you can ******** it free online, it teaches you how to taper off the benzodiazepines.
Also I read here today that with klonopin the best way is always to taper very slowlly, and the longer the spaces between a new small dose cut, the better, like .25 each 15 days or more, 1 month, whatever you can do.. Wish you luck and let's take our time to get off these drugs as it's not thaaaat easy..!
