Numb frontal lobe. Okay, well, that’s what it feels like. It’s not my skull that feels numb, but my brain!! Granted it’s most assuredly just a sensation as the brain reportedly does not feel anything.
I made my last Klonopin cut four days ago and it’s the first time the Klonopin has struck me with a withdrawal symptom. I’ve gone off a whole milligram so this is, all in all, going very well.
The reputation on the “street” is that benzos are the worst drugs to come off of. And for some people that is probably true, but so far, having come off EVERY SINGLE class of psychiatric drug, Risperdal and Lamictal have been the nastiest for me. The withdrawal hood is dominated by benzo users though so there aren’t nearly as many reports of long term users of neuroleptics and mood stabilizers.
In any case, as I’ve said many times before one persons easy drug is another persons drug from hell.
Hope this numbness is short lived because it feels really weird and unpleasant.
