Re: Trying to taper off Xanex and Klonopin...need help!
i went into detox for benzo dependancy, i was also on xanax, they gave me phenobarbital and clonodine, those two together will detox you from the benzo's for sure ask your doctor about them. i was taking 2 mg of xanax every 4-6 hours i tried quitting on my own i also had a seizure, those two meds definitly work, i didnt feel a thing infact i was extremely sedated, now i know your doc can perscribe you the clonodine,clonidine ( spelling? ), but the phenobarbital was given in a liquid form that was measure out and brought down in mg's every dose (which was every 4 hours), phenobarbital is a low strengh barbituate, im sure others barbs work as well, but you need the clonidine its an anti seizure/bloodpresure medication...another thing ... when i got off the xanax life was so hard to deal with, i was misserable, if you have trouble ask your doctor about zeprexa, its for bi-polar disorder i think, but it really helped, if it werent for thati would have been back in xanax within a week, if your doctor isnt comfortable with giving you that, ask him about depakote, i normally dont like to list out drug option when giving advice seeing im not a doctor, but i know how it feels that was the hardest thing for me to get off, this is not the addiction forum but i will say i have dont much worse and harder things, but getting off the xanax was the hardest.... i was recently put on a small dose again, but only becausei have serious heart issues, and the doctors say any stress on my heart is really bad for me, anyways good luck!!!
