Klonopin withdrawal should be medically assisted so that the user can have constant care that they need. Going through withdrawals could cause uncomfortable physical and mental states, the return of insomnia and anxiety, grand mal seizures, convulsions, and/or psychosis. Users shouldn’t try to detox on their own because they would be putting their lives at risk.

Another important reason for medical detoxing from Klonopin is because of the increased chance of severe mental symptoms that can occur. Depending on the severity of the addiction users may have to be tapered off of the drug they are abusing in medical detox. People may feel as though they are losing their sense of self and losing control. Since the drug’s effect on cognitive function and brain chemistry withdrawing can lead to physical and psychological dependence.
- Return/worsening of original anxiety, “rebound” effect
Klonopin addiction is high even with those who are prescribed these medications by doctors. If patients remain on the drug too long they can develop a tolerance and need more of the drug more often to feel the effects which lead to addiction. These prescriptions are usually well monitored by doctors, however, they are also easily found in illegal ways.
Long Term Klonopin Withdrawal Symptoms
The amount of time withdrawal will last depends on how long the user has been taking the drug, how much of the drug, and how they took it. After only a few hours or days they may start to feel the beginning stages of withdrawal which will last a few days. They may have trouble concentrating, drug cravings, mood swings, diarrhea, vomiting, muscle spasms, hallucinations, and even seizures. This can last for a couple weeks to several months. The support from the Master level clinicians at Recovery Ways will aid in the withdrawal process and help them overcome the drug cravings so that they do not relapse during this time.
