Thumbs down Re: Question for clonazepam/klonopin Users

I was on Klonopin for three years, and quit about six months ago. My problems are literally 50x worse than they were beforehand. I still have severe memory loss, complete loss of words in speech/writing, depression, euphoric state of mind, ridiculously extreme withdrawals, difficulty concentrating, loss of motivation & goals, apathetic, wake up with heart beating like a maniac, dizziness/drowsiness, confusion, personality alteration, muscle twitching, ejaculation disorder, and it completely obliterated my sex drive.

I tapered off it by slowly decreasing my dosage by .25mg/month for about six months. Clearly it didn't work. I recommend you stop taking it at once and find a natural method and/or at the least, find something else.

my $.02

I haven't started it yet, I'm alittle worried. I already have no sex drive though. I'm hoping to get put on bupropion to help with depression and maybe get my drive back.
I'm only supposed to take Klonopin when needed which isn't but a few times a month usually.

Re: Question for clonazepam/klonopin Users

I've been on it for 2 years to help with anxiety (my anxiety and stress has gotten so bad that I'm on 2 different anti-anxiety meds) I'm taking the 1mg tabs and can take up to 3 at night. He told me the bad thing about these ones is that you body can build up tolerance to them so he told me to be careful about how many I take a night, but he knows what my stress level is.
