@mmussak: Having gone through your and all the other posts, I would like to ask the same question that you posed yesterday: After 27 years and no problems why do you have to taper Clonazepam now, with all the terrible things happening to your body? I don't get it either. I am not a great admirer of Benzos, but these are legit drugs which have to be taken under certain circumstances, to alleviate a great deal of misery caused by intense anxiety. I take them myself, because I suffer from very severe and chronic anxiety and depression. These drugs should not be seen as inherently undesirable or evil; they serve a very important purpose [viz. to relieve anxiety], and are therefore prescribed much more frequently than antidepressants. If taken for a long period of time, it may not always be possible to taper them completely. The choice before you is to continue the taper with very unpredictable consequences and a great deal of suffering [and no guarantee of success], or to resume the dosage that you have taken for 27 years and lead a normal life. After all, don't people take medicines for depression, blood pressure, diabetes, or asthma [and many other chronic illnesses] for life? Anxiety is, similarly, a chronic illness, which may sometimes require medication for life, depending upon its severity etc. Please think about all these considerations and make up your mind soon. Do let me know what you think. God bless you.
