Withdrawal and exercise: Questions

Hello I've just discovered this site. I finished tapering off of Klonopin three months ago today and I have found it extraordinarily difficult to get back into shape after being waylayed for a few months by knee surgery. I sweat profusely now and I can only play a few games before I become so tired that I have to stop. My heart races, I sometimes feel dizzy and my playing partners day I look like I am about to have a heart attack. Perhaps I am just getting old but it feels like there are other things involved. Could the withdrawal be among them?

Re: Withdrawal and exercise: Questions

Hi, it long were you taking Klonopin? If it was long term then your withdrawal symptoms can certainly last for months and couple that with your inactivity and you have the perfect recipe for a hodgepodge of symptoms including sweating, dizziness and heart palpitations. When you start to get back to a cardio/aerobic program you will start to feel better as the endorphins released in the brain during exercise will help stabilize your brain chemistry and help eradicate all the symptoms you are presently going through. Good luck with this,......
