Try explaining to your doctor that in fact, your anxiety/insomnia is starting to get bad again... as if the drug
is losing its Magic. Tell him to put you on Lorazepam
instead if anything, it is very strong and from personal experience, I have found it much more effective for anxiety and depression. if your taking 3 mgs of Klonopin
, than around 4-6 mg lorazepam is needed. Damn that's a lot tho...
I am not suggesting this but, maybe you should probably reduce ur dose of Klonopin by .5 every 2 weeks, than switch over to diazepam
and get off it...
Or see if your doctor is willing to at least add a new Benzo
and reduce the dose of clonazepam
. For example, Nitrazepam
for sleep and 2 mg clonazepam during the day in divided doses. I'd recommend temazepam
for sleep but... you really don't wanna get addicted to that 1... the withdrawal
was IMO worse than Nitrazepam withdrawal.
