4 Years Today
« on: March 07, 2020, 08:40:14 pm »
It has been 4 years since I withdrew from Clonazepam.  I'm not completely healed, unfortunately, but I'm better.  I had many symptoms in the beginning, which have disappeared, but the one constant has been tinnitus.  I also have a burning mouth, but I had that problem before the benzo, and I don't know if it will ever go away.  I will consider myself healed if the tinnitus leaves, and if that day ever comes, I will post a Success Story.  In the meantime, I'm just trying to survive and distract.

I think Baylissa said her tinnitus was the last thing to go. Took a good few years.

Congrats on 4 years! I am just fresh off and have tinnitus as well.  Sometimes it is louder than others or changes pitch.  It is certainly annoying!  As well, I constantly have music playing in my brain! I hate that but can tune it out if I am reading or engaged in something, so that helps! I wish you continued healing!❤

Hi [...]

I remember you on this site when I was withdrawing from a benzo. I am off of clonazepam 4 years this month. I am experiencing awful tinnitus as well. The noise is very loud and never goes away. Since I was on this drug over 20 years I'm hoping that this isn't permanent damage.

Congratulations on 4 years!

I remember reading this when I joined this forum in 2020 and thinking how unbelievable and sad this post was and now Iím in the same boat. I understand how you feel although Iím only post 2 years out. Is there still no improvement with the Tinnitus? How are you overall?

It has been over 6 years now, and I still suffer from tinnitus 24/7.  It is a constant hissing noise that fluctuates in loudness.  I still have a burning mouth as well, so I'm miserable.  I have given up hope of ever healing.  In my opinion benzos can cause permanent damage.  :'(
