I'm going into hospital for a couple of weeks for a clonazepam withdrawal under my new pdoc. Pray that I have the strength to stand up to all the staff and let them know I'll not come off it all in 3 weeks. I really believe that for me this needs to be done over a much longer period as it's already been tried twice on lower doses and failed.
I'm hoping to be there only for 2 to 3 weeks and just start the swap over to valium, I'm not stupid if the pdoc writes up a plan I can follow it at home. He mainly wants me in now because of the risk of seizures, but done slowly there shouldn't be any. So Lord give me strength, I've been in there enough times now to know whats what.
Take care everyone and I'll speak to you all when I return.

Hey there Aussieangel!

I will be thinking about you while you are away getting the treatment you need.

You will find it in yourself to have the strength you need to get through the tough time that lies ahead of you.

I will pray for you. Keep your head up, be strong, and post when you come back.

Wishing you all the luck in the world!!!

I know that you will reach deep down inside and pull out the strength you need to get through this huge challenge.  You will win this battle and come out on the upside of the hill.

You have my support and I am sending you good vibes.  You have the desire, you will get the job done and what a great example you set for others.

It sounds like you're on a very high dose of clonazeapam, and a small dose can't even be withdrawn from in three weeks. If the doctors know anything at all about benzodiazepines you shouldn't have to convince them of anything. It's frustrating to hear this story.

I wish you the best.
