I vomited for about 2 days straight until nothing came out but bile. As I said I have IBD and I had major surgery a few years back to remove my entire colon and parts of my small intestine. I am seriously dehydrated. This can last weeks or months!!! Trying to speak with the on-call doctor after hours at my family clinic was a complete loss.
Calling Comprehensive was also a loss. The NP is refusing to look at this situation. I should be going if I have a seizure or am actually dying — which by the way could happen! My script says nothing about tapering. My family doctor does not get back for a week.
When he gets back in, I will call and tell him myself what is happening and he will most likely prescribe something for me because he already knows I was taking it- he prescribes me Vyvanse and encouraged me to keep taking the Klonopin to assist with the high BP and anxiety the Vyvanse can cause.
But I have to go through this horrible withdrawal and be in actual danger for a week plus the 5 days already. We need more people to tell their stories about this. I am looking into legal options; this is a medical malpractice suit in waiting.
I have read other stories here and elsewhere. This happens way too often. But they MUST have legal responsibility. Please, if you have gone through this, leave your story online. This needs to stop. This medication is not evil, but the mis-use and malpractice by incompetent or lazy doctors is absolutely terrible.

What sucks the most is the combination of both, and trying to prove you really are married when they truly thought it was a delusion when you said that you were married to a foreign immigrant who was a doctor in another state… yes, reality can be stranger than delusions.
Reply Link Princess March 17, , 5: I have been on Clonazepam for five or six years the same dose. It still works like a charm for me. I have severe anxiety and depression. I remember stopping for a year. I got back on it due to my anxiety. My doctor tried every medication for me to help me with my severe anxiety nothing helped. It was a last resort medication.
I see my psych doctor every three months. Clonazepam still works for me and works well. I know people that have been on it for 25 years and never had to increase there dose.
Also Clonazepam helps me focus and concentrate and actually helps me to remember. Reply Link Alexa March 19, , 5: It has been a living hell because I do not want to be on anything ever again. Reply Link beth January 28, , 3: I am watching my brother go through it an I am really scared for him. Matt January 10, , 2: Prescribed by a neurologist, I also have seen psychiatrists constantly since My problem with my situation is that no doctor ever suggested lowering the dose or tapering it.
I get profoundly unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Twice I ended up in status epilepticus unending seizure which required me to be put under general anesthesia.
There is no worse experience in heaven or on earth than cold turkey withdrawal from clonazepam. I would not wish it on my worst enemy. So, I have long since given up on the idea, being 40 now and even though I am sure I have discovered a cocktail that should reverse tolerance and eliminate almost all the symptoms, there is not a doctor in this state or any other within miles who can or will help me with it. This is a personal cocktail, it is sure to be different for each person.
These adjunct meds will work if I ever find a doctor to help me with this.. I think it could get millions off benzos. This drug binds to the same receptors and works astonishingly well for me.
Taurine is an anti-seizure and a glycine agonist, which eliminates muscle spasms, anxiety and panic, and regulates cellular electgrolyte balance. Uses Uses Clonazepam is used to prevent and control seizures. This medication is known as an anticonvulsant or antiepileptic drug. It is also used to treat panic attacks.
Clonazepam works by calming your brain and nerves. It belongs to a class of drugs called benzodiazepines. How to use Klonopin Read the Medication Guide provided by your pharmacist before you start taking clonazepam and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
Benzodiazepines such as Klonopin also produce feelings of mild euphoria and wellbeing. Klonopin and other Schedule IV substances have a potential for abuse and the development of physical dependence. They can only be legally obtained with a prescription from a physician. Withdrawal from Klonopin Because Klonopin is a high-potency benzodiazepine with a relatively short onset of action, it is used in the treatment of serious anxiety disorders, such as panic disorder.
However, these properties also leave open the potential for the development of a serious physical dependence on Klonopin. Other system functions compensate to operate for the presence of the drug, and the release and maintenance of freestanding levels of neurotransmitters, hormones, and the functioning levels of all systems in the body are adjusted according to the presence of the drug.
This situation results in the physical withdrawal symptoms that occur when one stops taking Klonopin. The physical withdrawal symptoms are accompanied by emotional and behavioral symptoms that are very uncomfortable for the person. Several variables affect the individual presentation of withdraw al from Klonopin in individuals who abuse the drug.
It is important to note that benzodiazepines like Klonopin are more often secondary drugs of abuse that are used in conjunction with some other primary drug, such as alcohol or narcotic medications. When there is polydrug abuse to substances that also carry a high risk for physical dependence, the withdrawal process is much more complicated. Variance in human physiology and psychological makeup can affect the intensity and length of withdrawal symptoms.
The length of time the individual abused Klonopin will influence the length and intensity of withdrawal symptoms.
The frequency of use and dosage used also affect the withdrawal process. The most often cited depiction of withdrawal from Klonopin or any benzodiazepine indicates that withdrawal really occurs in two major steps. That being said, benzodiazepine withdrawal is generally considered to occur in two stages: This period occurs within a period of days following last use, depending on the half-life of the benzodiazepine. Benzodiazepines with longer half-lives will result in the appearance of acute withdrawal systems later than benzodiazepines with shorter half-lives.
Klonopin has a half-life elimination of 40 hours, so individuals may not begin to feel serious acute withdrawal symptoms for a day or two following discontinuation. The other variable that affects the onset of acute withdrawal from Klonopin is the frequency and dosage of use.
The more often and higher the dose used, the sooner the withdrawal symptoms will appear. I have a weird sensation on my throat , it feels like i just swallowed some hair and it's stuck there , it is not painful , but very unpleasant. It has been like this for maybe 2 weeks already.

Theraflu has paracetamol in it. It is a pharingitis or somethingi am not anxiousnot agitatedi slept a night before with my window large open. So I had several days of brutal withdrawal. I had already told the front desk people about it and they assured me it was alright. I only pray klonopin you all receive the withdrawal that you need. Someone who has been accustomed to using symptoms at a certain level, but has not used them for a period of time and then returns to previous use levels, may end up suffering a fatal throat. It was my normal script as per usual, same instructions and everything, klonopin withdrawal symptoms sore throat. For meXanax interracts with paracetamol and becomes much stronger. Prescribed by a neurologist, I also have seen psychiatrists constantly since Though it helps many people, this medication may sore cause addiction. For children, the dose is also based on weight.
