> I am one month to the day without any klonopin in my system. I tapered all the way down to .25mg/day from 3mg/day. Each day is getting worse.
> I am taking 30mg of oxoxepam once per day to help regulate some of the withdrawal symptoms. Some people might consider that using gas to put out a fire, but I am at my wit's end.
I am sorry to hear you are having such a rough time with of it. I can identify as I myself have suffered such an unbelievable list of withdrawal symptoms, from everything from extreme paranoia and aggitation to visual and auditory hallucinations, and my husband is an alcoholic and is now paying dearly a very heavy price. (He is in prison for 8 years for drinking and driving - and I don't see it ever getting better, he is so hardwired to drink.) We have a 3 year old son who he has missed most of his growing up this far - and that goes both ways and tears me up...alcohol and drugs are truly the root of so much tragedy in todays world... and it affects so many people...)

Anyhow, good luck to you and thanks for your post.

PS Are you sure the ringing in your ears is coming from the klonopin w/d's? My mother has that so often, and worse for her is the dizziness. Have you had this at all? Or any visual disturbances? She has a lot of trouble adjusting to changes in lighting? (ie walking in from outside, going into stores, etc.?) She was diagnosed with POTS last year which is a newly accepted diagnosis/disease...and so we don't know what is coming from what. Let me know if you have any of the above. She would like to know she's not alone. Thanks again.

> I am not a newcomer to withdrawals. I am a recovering alcoholic. These withdrawals though make quitting alcohol seem like a day in the park.
> One of the major symptoms I have is ringing in the ears. Most of the other symptoms are far to complex and overwhelming to try to describe.
