In 2010 I was prescribed Vicodin .5/500 recently having been changed to .5/325. I have been taking clonazepam since approximately 2011 following the doctor having prescribed savella for fybromylagia. Had a reaction to savella causing breathing difficulties mixed with anxiety and tremors. My initial dose was .25 two times a day. In 2014 the doctor increased my dose to .5 two times a day. I would divide the dose into 4 quarters. Over time, noticed I was having to increase. Begin having to take 1/2 of the .5 mg. I am in day 4 of not having taken any of the Vicodin and Clonazepam. Stopped both all-together. I ve been laid off, have no insurance, no money. Besides that, I am a spiritual person and do not want to be dependent on anything. I am believing, by faith, in Christ Jesus that I am delivered from these medications. I am having the following symptoms, what are they and please, how do I get them to stop and go away? mental fog, occasional shaking especially when trying to type, heart palpitations, body pain, heart pressure, dizziness. Diarhea started yesterday. Occasional nausea. The thing that concerns me the most is the feeling like I can not get enough air which is accompanied with chest pressure, headache, and like I am dying. Will I die? I am drinking lots of tea. Please help, I don t want to even take a small dose to taper: like I said, I ve gone 3 full days and almost finish with day 4. Please help. Why am I experiencing these symptoms and what are they from? Thank you very much for your understanding and assistance.
