Hello, your story is amazing and I am wondering if anyone can help me and give me some direction.

I screwed up on my taper and do not know what to. After being put on and off multiple meds, and c/t off most of them after no results in eluding Ativan, I restarted previous prescribed Klonopin in late May, which was not helping after a month, so I quickly reducing .75 mg K to .5o k, then switched from .65 K and 5 mg V for 1 week and then dropped k and did 8 mg of V and started 1 mg taper per 7 to 10 days, tapered it down to 5mg while experiencing multiple symptoms and have been feeling awful!! I thought since I was only on the K short term ( all together over 3 months this run) I would be able to taper off fast.  ended updating 1 mg of V for 3 weeks the did not help. I am now getting micro sleeps, waking in sweats, bladder retention/issues, headaches, flu symptoms and more and I'm still on this poison. Idk if I should swathe back to Klonopin after 2 months or just suffer and try to keep tapering down?

Any suggestions would be a life saver!

Best! mdv

Thank you so much for writing this! You have given me [...]! I have been on 2-6mg of Klonopin for the last 20 plus years. Started out at .5mg and then gradually increased over the years. I don't take it every day. It was prescribed for panic attacks and anxiety. I do take it at least every other day and sometimes it's 2mg and other times its 4mg to sleep which only lasts 3 hours before I wake up. I know I have to take some every other day to avoid awful withdrawal symptoms but desperately want to get off of it. I am seeing a psychiatrist who is working with me to try and taper off but he has also said that I may have to take it forever. I sure [...] that is not true. I know it has worsened my depression, my mood and just my general joy for life. Your story is encouraging and I am [...] I will one day be sharing that I too was able to get off this horrible drug and see the beautiful colors of life again!

Thank you.

I'm 67 and afraid I won't survive this. I don't have the several years that I keep reading it takes which  depresses me deeply. Is this how I will spend my last years. Alone and such pain. That is not close to quality of life. I wont ever go back to benzo (or any other meds for that matter) but caring for myself has been the biggest struggle in my life and I've overcome several traumatic events. I'm so bone weary. Is there anyway of predicting recovery timetable?
