    Post klonopin/buspar

    I have been taking .5 mg of klonopin twice a day for a few months now and I want to quit taking it. I tried cutting down the dosage and have been feeling really horrible - tense muscles, can't seem to get enough air, clenching teeth. Not to mention that I feel even more tense than before I started taking the klonopin. My doctor suggested that I start taking Buspar - beginning with a low dosage and working up- to help with the knonopin withdrawal symptoms. He wants me to take the Buspar for a couple weeks and then try to taper off the klonopin. Has anyone had any success with this? I have a friend that says Buspar really worked for her, but I've also read that it doesn't work at all. I'd appreciate any info. My doctor has already called in the prescription for Buspar but I'm afraid to start taking it because of side effects - especially weight gain. I know that medications affect everyone differently, but I'm very sensitive to side effects and worry about taking anything.
