Cupcake7667 3 Jan 2013. Oh my! You did it cold turkey??? There's a risk of seizures when tapering off benzos and klonopin is a brutal one (not to make you feel bad). I know it's milder than say Xanax or other benzodiazepines, however my sister did a detox in rehab and said it was the worst experience in.
i took clonzapan and started taking only 1/4 of a pill a day it worked good then i got scared and went back to half a pill at night ive only got around 5 mil in my system should i keep going with the 1/4 to help me get off of the clonzapan.
I have had times where I have had some numbing in my face. It concerned me, but always went away. I take that back. so I never really did anything about it.
I just want to add that I was addressing your problem with the suggestion I just posted a few minutes ago.
