Klonopin Withdrawal Schedule

Klonopin Withdrawal Schedule

Klonopin withdrawal schedule planning can make the process much less problematic and much smoother than taking a random tapering approach.

  • Prescribed for: seizure disorders, panic disorders, anxiety
  • Warnings: doubled risk of suicidality, and increased frequency of grand mal seizures, can be fatal if mixed with opioids or other CNS depressants, not recommended for schizophrenia as the drug increases violent behavior in this population.

  • Onset: within an hour
  • Fertility: animal studies showed decreased fertility including generationally inconclusive)
  • Birth Defects: animal studies showed deformed limbs, cleft palate, fused sternebrae, at low doses as well as high doses.
  • Pregnancy: Klonopin can pass to the nursing infant through breast-milk, infants can experience postnatal withdrawals if taken by mother during pregnancy.

Alternative to Meds Tapering Program

We have helped thousands of our clients to successfully taper off prescription and other drugs, using a uniquely tailored Klonopin withdrawal schedule for each client. Preparing for a taper is fundamental and can significantly ease the adverse effects associated with Klonopin discontinuation syndrome. Using a pre-taper set of lab tests helps to determine what factors to address before tapering begins.

Heavy metals, chemical residues, pollutants from environmental sources, food, water, etc. get trapped in the fat tissues, and block nutrient uptake. Accumulations of neurotoxic substances can be tested for and identified for removal from the system using such methods as:

  • chelators which bind to the toxin encouraging elimination
  • supplements to convert oil-soluble toxins to inert water-soluble form for removal via sweating and excretory channels.
  • low-temperature sauna to release toxin-laden sweat through the skin and excretory pathways to bypass taxing the liver and kidneys.

Toxin removal removes the barrier to absorbing nutrients and allows for the flooding of needed nutrients into the cells. Clients typically respond to this change in several positive ways. Feeling overall more energetic is commonly reported, along with the reduction in problematic symptoms: sleeping more soundly, increased appetite lessened anxiety and better mood. It is at this point of positive change that we would introduce safe and gradual tapering protocols.
