Jay1 Posted August 15, 2011 Report Share Posted August 15, 2011 I have been thinking over how to approach this post, as I don't wont to offend or belittle people who took the benzo route, early on... please note that I am not judging anyone... Just adding my thoughts. Please also note that I am not against Klonopin use and take 1.5mg at least once a week, sometimes 2 or 3 times... i have also had 2-3 weeks on 2mg occasionally to get me through some torrid times. As a short term aid, it can be very beneficial.... But taken everyday, it can soon get out of control. I get PMs occasionally about what meds to try and klonopin is top of everyone's wishlist. I want to write a warning that people should think long and hard about taking this medication everyday. It is the most effective medicine we currently have and alot of people who are in their first year of hppd and are scared and desperate will jump straight onto it, sometimes without enough research. I implore anyone reading this to think about it carefully and really research dosage, addiction and most importantly, withdrawal. I am thankful to members of the old board who relayed awful horror stories to us about withdrawal and that was enough to convince me that I should do my best to never get addicted. Hopefully some users here can add in with some similar stories because it feels like the new board does not contain enough info on benzo withdrawal combined with hppd. If you are in your first year.. try to resist the quick fix and learn to cope with your hppd, as best you can. What scares me the most is the thought of people who never learned to cope with this shit, and then have to suffer with hppd AND benzo withdrawal. Sorry if this sounds preachy... but it is a point worth making, I think. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
