Hi Joe.

I was on Klonopin for less than a year, but the withdrawal effects were hellish. I really didn't know how to go about tapering it back then, though. It was worse than Ativan withdrawal. I felt lightening bolts going off in my head. They were so bad, I swear I could see them. I have had a relatively easy time discontinuing Ativan using a flexible dosing strategy. I used decreasingly small amounts of Ativan as a PRN whenever the withdrawal symptoms appeared.

There are some reports of the successful discontinuation of benzodiazepines using Trileptal (oxcarbazepine). It is also being studied for treating alcohol withdrawal syndrome. Trileptal is not addictive.
