I've been taking Klonazepna for the last 4 years or so. Started with 1mg and went up to arround 2-2.5mg (when I got there I noticed was increasing to much so I stopped and started going back and forth) Klonazepan did something nothing else did. Made me have way less nightmares (like a normal person I would say). and it always made me sleep well (I only used for sleeping, never for anxiety) But everyone twisted their noses when they heard I take it every day... Everyone (Drs. or non Drs.) So it's been a while since I want to stop it and my doctor (who doesn't know much about fibro or me/cfs) wants me to stop to and maybe change to ambien since "it's way less prejudicial" Ok. I decided to give it a try. 4days in I started having a looot of pain in my neck and back, which I wasn't experiencing even now I'm working out kinda hard (specially for someone like us). I'm actually in my best shape every since I got sick and no signal of damages.... So at first I didn't even related to Klonazepan but now, I finally did. I went from 20-25 drops (.1mg each) to 15 drops and 4 days after It started to hurt Wow I took 20 drops again just to check and my pain diminished A LOT! So unless I'm projecting... something's on here... Wonder if clonazepan was making my pain milder (since I've never been so well I would guess) or if the withdrawl is cruel enough to make me feel more pain and I'll have to power trhough. I just read that a lot of doctors like to use it to "proctect'' the brain in CFS/ME, but some are reluctant to do it. So throw anything you know at me please. @Cort if you can, give me some light, I think you might know a lot about it.
