If you're going with it be carefull not abusing, not taking it too long since in MY experience it COULD be addictive somehow. This withdrawal was only second to Clonazepam.

Clonazepam somehow plays with the Serotonin system in a bad way in the long term. Xanax is more gentle in that regard.

Marty,
Thanks for your post. Which kind of taper did you do with Kpin? May I ask why you were taking it. Also did you substitute lyrica, etc for you kpin dose or start using it after your withdrawal. Sorry about all the question. Just really curious and want to make sure I'm making all the right decisions. Thanks!
