I also noticed night sweats and wondered if it's coming from going off the Xanex.I am falling aleep very early in the evening(around 8:00 and sleep 3 hours and then have trouble sleeping at night.
Hello mograce. I think you'll be alright. Just my thoughts to your question. Klonopin is a long lasting, acting benzodiazepine and so will remain in your body much longer than the Xanax whereas the Xanax is a fast, short acting benzodiazepine, its a fast relief drug, but leaves your body much quicker. You shouldn't feel that much of a change. You might see a difference in the first few days, but once the drug, Klonopin has settled in your system, and has adapted itself, you should be fine. I wouldn't worry and remember you're still in the benzodiazepine family. Best of wishes to you, and good health,pledge
