My appt had to be rescheduled therefore it gave me a day without the klonopin. that very morning i felt as if it was a withdrawal. Was this a withdrawal or just a mental thing ?

I take klonopin. It wasn't a mental thing. I went thru many withdrawals from opioids, I am right now again. When I was on xanax very similar to klonopin I overused them ran out and dr wouldn't refill. Believe me dont ever let your scripts get close to running out. Benzos withdrawal can kill you. I had seizures, hallucinations, extreme disorientation and off the roof high anxiety. That was only being without for 3 days. Ended up being hospitalized. Don't let it happen to you, ever.

Depending what Mg.how long have you been taking it? Um I take 1Mg @ bedtime for RLS, when I first started taking them my stupid self had my pill box on a shelf above of all places my sink needless to say it got knocked into the dish water and I lost 4-5 days worth. Didn't think anything of it until I tried to get a refill and of course they told me it was too soon. Well, I had never went through wihtdrawl from anything so I had no clue why I was feeling the way I did I would be hot and sweating one moment and freezing the next.The shakes the whole nine yards. I think this was after like 3 days. It's been a long time but I'm pretty sure thats how long it was. Yeah do your best not to let it run out. I would bet the Doctors and Nurss at the e.r. were taking bets what kinda (illegal) drugs I was withdrawling from.
