I have been taking clonazepam for anxiety disorder for about fifteen years. One physician told me years ago that one day short term memory loss would become a problem. Now it is more than just a problem. I am a cook by trade and you can imagine how short term memory plays a vital role in a high volume kitchen. I am aware that when having not taken my medication for a few days, I seem sharper and even at my age short term memory is heightened. Also, emotional responses become greater, less numbness. Unfortunately, the anxiety becomes overwhelming even after withdrawal symptoms fade. Looking for a way to survive without seeking disability.
Your dr needs to put on something else for anxiety like Buspar or an antidepressant, then you can wean off the clonazepam.
I do several games a day that are to make your brain function. All you need to do is sign up for one, and you'll get more emails about others. There is a math one that can really be a challenge and I was good in math in school all those years ago. Even crossword puzzles are helpful.
