Clonazepam Withdrawal

At Alternative to Meds Center, we recognize that there are other solutions than a lifetime of Clonazeam use that often leads to Clonazepam withdrawal symptoms. 


When a person quits taking Clonazepam, some of the most bothersome symptoms of any drug withdrawal can present. Alternative to Meds Center uses safe and precise methods of Clonazepam withdrawal help to make sure that the withdrawal experience is comfortable and leads to lasting relief.

Symptoms of withdrawal from Clonazepam can include, but are not limited to the following side effects: abdominal pain, agoraphobia, aching, body vibrations, anxiety, changes in perception, blurred vision, flatulence, food cravings, distended abdomen, diarrhea, flu like symptoms, hair loss, heavy limbs, heart palpitations, insomnia, increased allergies, lethargy, muscle spasms, loss of coordination or balance, metallic taste in the mouth, paranoia, nightmares, panic attacks, shaking, severe headaches, sore tongue or mouth, short term loss of memory, speech difficulties, sensitivity to sound and light, persisting unpleasant memories, suicidal thoughts, tinnitus, sweating, fear and unusual sensitivity. This medication should not be suddenly stopped; particularly after prolonged use. Alternative to Meds Center is capable of tapering users off of this drug and helping them establish effective alternative treatment plans.

Clonazepam, generic for the brand name drug Klonopin, is included in the benzodiazepine family of medications and prescribed for panic disorder treatment. When a person wants to stop taking this medication, it is crucial to gradually stop using it and more importantly, to do so with professional Clonazepam withdrawal treatment. These days many people are taking benzodiazepines for panic and anxiety disorders. Some of these people find that using this medication is no longer needed. The only problem with that is the symptoms of Klonopin withdrawal, which can be difficult to deal with and sometimes dangerous. People may often feel as though they are riding a roller coaster when attempting to stop and then having to start back up because of difficult Clonazepam withdrawal symptoms. Professional help ensures that the process of withdrawal is comfortable, safe and successful.

One of the first things to do in lessening these symptoms is talking to a medical professional about how to taper off of Clonazepam. During Clonazepam tapering, you can take your time, gradually reducing the dosage of the amount you have been taking. Being good to your body is essential during benzodiazepine withdrawal, as the body will be experiencing a lot of metabolic and chemical changes. Drinking plenty of purified water and supplementing with the right vitamins helps the body through these changes. In addition, benzodiazepine medications can be incredibly habit-forming, therefore, these drugs are not recommended for long-term use (longer than 14 days). It’s reported that a benzodiazepine withdrawal is much more involved than methamphetamines, alcohol, or even heroin and other opiates. Despite this, there were 112.8 million prescriptions filled for these medications in 2008, the majority were prescribed from primary care physicians. Alternative to Meds Center provides effective Clonazepam withdrawal help to assist people in getting off of this medication without discomfort.

To understand why Clonazepam withdrawal is experienced when people try to stop taking this medication, it’s essential to first look at the possible underlying causes of panic and anxiety disorders. There are toxins, namely neurotoxins, which can collect within a person’s system throughout their lifetime. This can cause an effect of a nervous system that is over-stimulated. One example is pesticides: a pesticide created to kill a bug, such as a grasshopper, kills the bug in these following ways. The pesticide toxin permeates into the exoskeleton and navigates its way through the nervous system. A pesticide will cause acetylcholine channels to continuously remain open in the nervous system, and it will not allow for these channels to be closed. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter of stimulation that will make the grasshopper start jumping. A constant and unregulated influx of acetylcholine will put the insect into death, and that is how a pesticide kills a pest. We work towards discovering and correcting the underlying reasons that led to Clonazepam use.

A build-up of this toxin in the human body acts in a similar way on the nervous system since we use acetylcholine for stimulation too. Alternative to Meds Center commonly finds in instances of anxiety, that the individual has collected neurotoxins like heavy metals which are causing over-stimulation to the nervous system. Benzodiazepines are the most frequent class of drugs we address since unsupported withdrawal is exceedingly difficult. Our methods for this specific type of medication are diverse but include gentle taper techniques, removals of collected neurotoxins, neurochemical support with natural substances, peer support, and the beneficial effects of relaxation inducing therapies including massage, acupuncture, sauna and meditation.

Each client receives a personalized treatment regimen. With most people, a rapid withdrawal plan is not going to relieve anxiety, since anxiety often remains when the medication is gone. Our goal is to offer relief that is lasting, and provide people with long-term alternative solutions for mental health. We have proven solutions that can help you.
