Hi.....just wanted to know how long have you been on klonopin? how much are you taking? are you satisfied with it? are you afraid that one day you will have to quit and go thru the withdrawals? cause I am on klonopin and love it.and just added lexapro 4 days ago,but I am terrified that one day I will have to quit klonopin and go thru the withdrawals ...so I am dwelling about it which is increasing my anxiety ......how about you?
Thank you
Micha

I am sure someon will be along to answer this for you

I dont take Klonopin but I have successfully come off a very high dosage of other benzo's and now only take when absolutely needed which is few n far between

Relax your mind and let the med do its job or you will find you cannot relax at all even on the klonopins IMHO

Keep us posted ........

Take care

I am on Klonopin...I take .5 mg in the morning and .5 mg at night. I have only been on it since November 1st, but I simply love it. It is helping SO MUCH with my panic attacks, and I couldn't live without it...LOL.

I don't want to think about ever coming off it, since it is making my life feel so good now. I guess though, Iam a bit nervous about when the time comes to come off it.

I know others will be along with their answers...people who have been taking it longer than me, or maybe those who have taken it, and come off it.

Wishing you the best.

Thank you Lyn.......my dr told me the same thing...to relax and let the med do its job.....its the fear of the futur when I will have to quit it......you said that you successfully quit benzo...was it hard? and how did you do it?

Thank you Tammy for your reply...I'm glad you're doing good on klonopin.....yes,it is a good med,but benzo have so much bad reputation ...and you hear so may horror stories...that's why im freaking out........I've been taking it for a while as needed....like 2 to 3 times a week......and now i am on lexapro too.....I have such bad anxiety...makes my life miserable.....I need them both I guess....

I was on klonopin for a while and I did as my dr said and had no problem with withdrawls. Try not to worry about that until it's time.

Thanks
