The doctor put me on Clonazepam in Dec. 2007 after having severe anxiety due to my dad's death. I was taking 1mg, 3 X a day. I feel like this medication has taken over my life. I am very agitated, get very confused and it has affected my memory. I have attempted to wean myself from this drug. I am down to one half of the .5 mg 2 X a day. However, I can not seem to get past this point. I am unable to function. I have major headaches, muscle jerking, major sweats and all I can do is lay in the bed. It scares me. What do I do? Why did the doctor not tell me how addicting this drug is?
