I cut down 1/2 mg of Klonopin and stopped feeling sick as a dog. That simple.
My doc thought it was toxicity but I was afraid it was withdrawal sickness instead which meant we waited longer than necessary to make the next taper. So I was sick and bedridden for four days for no good reason.
At least we learned to trust the muscle testing more—it was indicating I should come off more of the drugs. It’s a test of faith for both me and my doctor. You can google muscle testing for info on how it works. It’s also called “applied kinesiology.” Quackwatch (an anti-natural, pro-pharma site) likes to blast it as a load of crap as it does all natural treatment. You’ll see that website right up there with the sites supporting muscle testing if you google it.
Yesterday I was so ill I literally could not get out of bed and while in bed I stared at the wall in a stupor I was so out of it. Also I had diarrhea, nausea and headache. Today all that is gone.
1/2 mg less of Klonopin last night and I slept the whole night through for the first time in about a week and I went out, got my hair cut and did major heavy duty home shopping today. I was even lifting a 50 lb bag of dog food around as well as 5 gallons of water, etc.
I’m not in the mood to write much but wanted to boast my success!
And yay! I’ve began my Klonopin withdrawal with a bang!
I put that off until last and I’m finally here!
