Welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your question...
You seem to be suffering from a benzodiazepine
dependence syndrome. Zapiz (Clonazepam
) is a sedative belonging to the class of benzodiazepines. All the symptoms which you develop after trying to stop the medication are withdrawal symptoms
. My advise to you would be to very gradually decrease the medication i.e. take 3/4th for one month, 1/2 for the next month, 1/4th for the next month and then stop. If you have any difficulty with doing this on your own, please consult a psychiatrist
who will be able to assess you in detail and advice you further.
Following proper 'sleep hygiene' and a healthy lifestyle will help you regain your natural sleep cycle
Wish you all the best.
