You can not stop taking benzodiazapines suddenly or you will have a nasty seizure and might even die during the seizure like I did!!! Thank God EMT got me back!
Am I right in thinking that you are hoping to stop taking them for a while and then, hopefully, when it is out of your system you will get your original tolerance back?
It would take a quite while to get even close to your original medication tolerance and you may not find it easy; Clonazepam has a very long half life and it is the most addictive, commonly prescribed Benzodiazepine in the USA. You will find that probably after using it for one month continuously it might not be so easy to just stop (some people can, some people can't) without sleep disturbances and an increase in your anxiety levels in proportion to dose and length of time you took the medication.
