I was on Xanax and klonipin for over 10 years and I went into detox because I wasn't sure how withdrawal would effect me. It went fine and it's been almost three weeks since I was off of them and I had a real bad day and went to check myself back into rehab but after waiting 6 hours I felt better. The ear doc gave me clorazepate 3.75 mg which my go won't refill for me. The problem with this is I am terrified to really leave my house except to go into the busier part of my town because I'm 5 minutes from the safety of my home. I'm scared to go to a psychiatrist because I'm not working don't have insurance and the only free helpi can get is over 30 minutes away into a place I really don't know so I'm looking for a non benzodiazepine that can help as good as clorazepate. I'm on Paxil busipar and have atarax and some clorazepate for my depression and anxiety and panic but my gp, won't do benzodiazepines for me anymore. I need a recommendation if any are there.
Shayne; I am so sorry that you are having so much trouble. But really your taking just about all you should need. It's just fighting the urge of the BENZODIAZIPINES it's a shame the doctor would not give you a low dose of one to help during the worst of it. But if it were me I would try one of two things ride it out. Increase your liquids a bit of exercise to help sweat it all out of you. And you good also try taking a vitamin B-50 OR B=100 ONE daily in the morning... THE other choice would be to get the doctor to adjust your medication. like changing the Paxil on of the original SSRI'S TO one of the newer ones that help more with the anxiety or changing it to a SSNRI Which has a boost for many people over the standard SSRI (PAXIL) If you try one of those they seem to work better with the anxiety and Depression more than the Paxil in my opinion. But one thing you have been taking the Benz's for a long time and you should at the very worst be through any withdrawal in the next week or two if you can handle it. Sorry this is not uncommon it's from part physical and mental withdrawals. Hang in there buddy. feel free to keep in touch with us. if you get to overwhelmed GO TO THE E.R. ROOM WITH A LIST OF ALL YOUR MEDICATIONS. Chuck1957
