... physical agony and could not get off this drug. Another psychiatrist has now put me on clondine and am hoping this will work. I do believe it will take some time but as long as I can rid my body of this benzo life will be much better because I have been on it too long and it has for some time taken away my usual energy and also have not felt well as if I have aome type of flu. Will this be the best way to shake this addiction?
