@Mary @Learner1 @Stretched @geraldt52 Thanks for all the input. Very helpful. And interesting. Just ordered a Cortisol profile test. And iHerb here I come again. I agree. There is no way around that. Klonopin is definitely working against me right now. Too bad tapering has to be done that slow. That Vodka trial will have to wait . In the mean time let's hope some of the suggestions here will help a bit during this process.
