Its a horrible drug and the doctors are INSANE. I can't believe the hell I am going through after just .50mg for 2 months and that was tapered the first month and STILL feeling crappy. Been off for 6 days and feeling pretty awful. Tinnitus, headache, muscle spasms, eye sight weird- off, and a little panicky. Sleeping is VERY difficult. I pray I do not have a seizure. That is scary. I now at day 6 of being off feel like I am falling forward a little but know I am not. It's an eye sight dizzy almost wonder if I am really experiencing this or not feeling.

Hi! How long were you omit and what mg? I've been taking one or two 1mg at night for maybe 3 years now. I cold turkeyed this once and couldn't eat and then was gone omg to the bathroom all the time (slippery bowel syndrome) and felt horrible and that became a cycle. I thought I was losing my mind and I lost more weight than I ever intended to. I need to get off this medicine.

My new dr told me to reduce by 1/4 every 2 weeks and I will feel bad for two months. I had reduced from 2 mg to 1 mg three years ago and didn't do so slowly. It was hell. Hoping this time will be easier with longer time.

I am taking .75mg for a year. My problem with insomnia was biggest struggle while reducing dosage. PLEASE EDUCATE ME ON SLEEPLESSNESS TO OVERCOME. I do have most of withdrawals symptoms but resisting on these. Thanks!

Re: jennifer (# 3)

I do 60 .5 a MTH. 6 years. I stopped cold turkey lasted two weeks and a second time two weeks and counting ( still as I type). The first time was worse then the second time. I fought the withdrawal and always lost when no sleep was happening. The first week after stopping one time felt like duct tape or Gorillaz Tape was being pealed off my liver spleen and kidneys (felt like a moving peeling) day and night finally fadeing to RLS and some twangs. Second time hasn't finished wluk.

Wisconsin Man 30 years old Says:

I have felt trapped on two medications: adderall and klonopin. After 8 years and several attempts to get off I'm working on it again as I know there's hope. I think after a certain amount of time the medications kind of take a turn and then like what I've been reading by many, we weren't informed by the doctor of the seriousness of the meds. I'm working on the adderall first. I took a big leap at first lowering from 60mg to 30mg over a week. It's been a little bit longer now, I'm not going to go so fast with the last 30 mg and I'm going to make sure I have support as I have already felt crazy a bit, but not any crazier than I was feeling before so I'm okay. :) Once I taper off the adderall over the next weeks/months, I then hope to start a taper of the 1mg of klonopin I'm on.

I have tapered off of this before and know its possible. And yes it must be done in small increments, it can be tough as I don't have a pill cutter and break them up. I think I will get a pill cutter to be safe. I have ADD symptoms and generalized anxiety, I didn't have either of these before I went to the doctor 8 years ago saying I can't focus and have anxiety. God has other plans for me. Or maybe the plan is for me to learn how to get through this so I can help others! There are probably millions out there suffering. This needs to be addressed and exposed. My doctor tells me to break them in half for a few days and be done. With adderall and klonopin? Are you serious? People will go seriously crazy as I felt like I was following this insane advice.

Take it slow and ask someone to help you to be accountable as I will be doing within the next few days. It's not time to be tough and do it on our own. And this isn't something where you hide in your house and wait to shake it off. We have to reach out even when we don't feel like it. I have a young daughter and these meds are not good for me as a single father. I have faith in God and I know he will guide me through. I also learned to not demonize the meds as for some it's the right thing for them for the moment. It's so vital we know what we're taking though before we take it. Sometimes it's so easy to get excited but the reality is years can go by and we could be doing damage that's not repairable. We are the guinea pigs, we are the statistics they study.

We are all different but we are all human. The anxiety we have is that of the flight or fight kind that many years ago was actually a great benefit. Think about living where wild animals also live or during a time of war. It's good to have anxiety then. The issue is now we leave in different times where the world is very populated and there's so much noise polution and electronics and people think it's normal to be trying to do a million things at once. It's not. I can't even go into a store most days without feeling like I need to run out of there. And yes certain experiences in our past can be a part of these things so make sure you learn about your past when making these decisions. I'm in my 10th year in college pursuing my Master's degree and I feel like a slave to these meds. I will rely on my faith in God and support and tapering plan and I won't give up until this is completed. I tried quitting cigarettes many times and finally was able to cut that out and that was ironically 8-9 years ago, right before my daughter was born and right before I started on meds. I could only afford meds because I had insurance suddenly once my daughter was born. I almost feel like she hasn't met her real dad yet. It's exciting, weird, and very strange but I'm okay with that. It's time for new beginnings!!! :) Spreading God's Love to All.

Re: jennifer (# 3)

I was doing zanex for about a year and weened off it rather quickly , only five days and then after that I just had cold sweats and felt like I had the flue for a couple weeks but that's about it . What I tell everyone coming off an addictive drug is to exercise . It really helps a lot and makes you feel better and back to normal a lot faster than sitting around feeling sorry for yourself and experiencing every little withdrawal symptom . So you might give that a try after speaking with your doctor first , of course! Good luck , you will succeed if you really give it your best shot . Oh and don't ask the doctor about what kind of withdrawal symptoms you might experience cuz when I do , I seem to contract every one of them , lol . Best of luck to you !
