i had simialiar terrible withdrawl from benzos a few years ago, i was taking 60 to 80 mg valium for a year. I had to taper off also, then felt horrible anxyity for a month. I don't remember it being as bad as oxy withdrawl from a stomach problem issue,.. I do take klonapin occasionaly now, but I will never take it several times a day for more than a few days again. It is best that you use it just PRN or as needed. try not to take it 3x day or so. then you will get addicted and you will suffer.
