Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
From the description of your symptoms, it appears that you are likely to be suffering from withdrawal effects of the anti-anxiety medication
. Now,I presume that you are referring to Klonopin (Clonazepam
) - which is a frequently prescribed benzodiazepine
anti-anxiety medication. Benzodiazepine anti-anxiety medication, if taken for long periods of time and stopped abruptly can result in a variety of withdrawal symptoms
- both psychological and physical symptoms.
One way to prevent these withdrawal symptoms is to gradually taper down the dose, rather than stopping them abruptly. If your symptoms are distressing and unmanageable, then I would advise you to report this to your doctor so that you can be given a tapering schedule for the medication or started on some alternative anti-anxiety medication.
Wish you all the best.
Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar
