User Comments about Klonopin
05 Mar 2018 This drug has reduced my previously productive life into a wide range of physical and mental symptoms. It has taken away my livelihood as I could no longer concentrate, deal with stress and ability to safely drive. I physically deal with migraines, terrible digestive issues and fatigue among many others. Mentally my anxiety, depression have been greatly increased. I have agoraphobia, depersonalization and derealization. All of these symptoms I did not have until about 12 years after taking benzodiazepines, Which were originally prescribed for for a slight hand tremor. I would never recommend benzos (Klonopin) to anyone. If you do take them proceed with caution and research long term consequences.

04 Mar 2018 Klonapin was the worst drug I ever took. My psych kept ordering more and more and just increased the times i would see her. I was up to about 8 mg a day. I went off cold turkey and suffered for 5 years, people who only have a week of hell on heroine are lucky. This drug withdrawl was hell,I couldn't speak to anyone, I hated just getting up to go to the bathroom. My life was consumed with trying to become normal again. I couldn't go out for.months. I had to wear ear buds and music just to calm me at sleep. Unless you have gone thru this no one would believe how bad it really is. If I just had to get thru a week that would have been paradise, don't take it it's not worth it!
