Overcoming Klonopin Withdrawal is our Mission

Klonopin (Clonazepam, Rivotril, Paxam, Rivatril, Clonex) is a medium-acting benzodiazepine that has anticonvulsant, muscle relaxant, anti-anxiety and hypnotic properties. Klonopin has a slow onset and peaks therapeutically about four hours after ingestion. There are drawbacks due to the paradoxical effects and extended use (greater than 10-14 days) causing tolerance, benzodiazepine dependence and benzodiazepine withdrawal symptoms, which occur in 1/3 of people after four weeks of use.

Klonopin enhances the neurotransmitter GABA, which is the most common inhibitory, or calming neurotransmitter. Therefore Klonopin has a profound effect on nearly every aspect of the body and brain. As tolerance to the drug occurs, the calming effect diminishes and breakthrough anxiety and extreme excitability occurs. Many misinterpret tolerance for a worsening of anxiety and increase the dosage, only to reach tolerance again. Chronic use of Klonopin, like all benzodiazepines, causes a down regulation of GABA. It is this action that is responsible for the widespread withdrawal symptoms.

There are numerous manufacturers of Klonopin and each state that abrupt withdrawal of Klonopin can cause seizures, severe withdrawal symptoms and be life-threatening. A gradual dose reduction is recommended, but no guidelines are provided.

Our nonprofit was formed to help you taper Klonopin properly to minimize Konopin withdrawal symptoms. Our team has regained their lives from these drugs and we are here to help you withdrawal comfortably from Klonopin.

What is Klonopin?

(Clonazepam, Rivotril, Rivatril)

Klonopin (Clonazepam) is a medium acting benzodiazepine derivative that has anticonvulsant, muscle relaxant and very potent anti-anxiety qualities.  The half-life is 18-50 hours depending on how it is metabolized by the liver.  Klonopin has a fast onset of action and is classified as a high potency benzodiazepine, used for anxiety and as a second line treatment of epilepsy. It is not recommended for long-term (greater than 10-14 days) due to the development of tolerance for anxiety and the anticonvulsant effects.  Some potentially serious side effects may develop, including interference with cognitive functions and behavior. Both physiological and psychological dependence can occur and one third of individuals treated with benzodiazepines for longer than 4 weeks can develop a dependence and subsequent withdrawal symptoms upon dose reduction. High dosage and longer term use increases the risk and severity of dependence and withdrawal symptoms, yet even low dosages can cause dependence.  Klonopin should be reduced gradually to reduce withdrawal effects and other risks.
