I was taking Klonopin (clonazepam) for my anxiety for like, 5 years. I didn’t feel that it was helping me any longer, so my psychiatrist at PHP #4 successfully weaned me off of it. He was surprised that I didn’t have any withdrawal symptoms, while I was glad that I didn’t.
It’s been about a month since I took my last Klonopin, and I’m not as anxious as I thought I was. Sure, I have some anxiety — everybody does — but I’m not fidgeting, I haven’t had a panic attack. Mostly I’m nervous about participating in group activities, like yoga and martial arts. I’m starting to face those fears.
