Jul 9, 2013 · burning mouth syndrome very severe in Skin Health

Klonopin is a benzodiazepine & all benzodiazepines can cause physical dependence. It is not meant for long-term use as I was prescribed. I’m glad you had a good experience but that doesn’t disregard that it can have MAJOR withdrawal symptoms if not weaned off slowly & if taken long-term it causes physical dependence. My comments were to HELP someone & PREVENT them from going through the HORRIBLE DISABLING withdrawal that I had for nearly ONE YEAR!!!! I shared my experience as to HELP someone else NOT go through what I went through!!!! I WISH SOMEONE SHARED THEIR EXPERIENCE W/ME BEFORE I TOOK THAT HATEFUL CRIPPLING DRUG!!!!! Also, do not state facts that you can not back up – my experience happens to more people than you know!!!!! It is TYPICAL & many many people have become addicted to Benzo’s so don’t come on here & make light of a situation that can cause death, suicide, divorce, mental/physical disabilities etc. it is a VERY SERIOUS drug & should be taken w/CAUTION or in my opinion NOT AT ALL!!!!!

Yeah I’ve been through the whole route too 🙁 including almost losing my life after trying to get off of Klonopin!!! Nasty medication & controlled for a reason!! I maintain with Neurontin, ALA, Vit B & Zoloft. Dr’s are just clueless…. How are you maintaining & doing?? Its just awful I’m so sorry you have to deal with this too!! Good Luck & God Bless 🙂

The Mayo Clinic recommends Alpha Lipoic Acid & Vitamin B which are both harmless 🙂 I take ALA 200 mg. 3x day & Vit B once per day & I believe that they have helped some. Also, all of you who are suffering have you had any surgeries or tooth work? This happened to me after a tonsillectomy & I do believe I may have had some nerve damage?! Also, anxiety is a cause of this & I suffer from that as well; do any of you? The safer route to Klonopin which you’ve heard me suggest to stay away from is Neurontin, I am on 900 mg. 3x day, yes that much! Plus the ALA & Vit B & Zoloft for the anxiety. I also have some good days & some bad days & some inbetween days, the bad days are awful!! This is such a tough disorder to have!!!! Sometimes I find eating something small can change the way my mouth feels or chewing gum. I wish there were Dr.s that were knowledgeable about BMS because those of us who suffer need some guidance & relief! May God Bless you & keep you as pain free as possible!!! 🙂

Please do not use KLONOPIN & disregard any advice to take it! It is a CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE for a reason!! I have used it & almost lost my life!!!! I became mentally & physically disabled after getting off of it! You can’t think or function & people lose their marraiges, jobs etc. please be careful!!!!!!! I would not recommend taking this medication!!!!!

And I also have been to every Dr. in the world who looks at me like I’m from another planet & tells me to see a different Dr. & you wind up going in circles!!! SO FRUSTRATING!!!!!
