Full of hope and excitement I entered my doctors office showing him a print out of this: http://phoenixrising.me/treating-cf...ibromyalgia-a-prescription-for-sleep/klonopin Dr. David Bell's quote: For years I have said that Clonazepam is perhaps the most useful medication in chronic fatigue syndrome - Dr. David Bell The doctor gladly prescribed the requested medication and I have been on 0.5mg x3 a day clonazepam/rivotril for 1 month, prescribed as an experiment to see if it would help with the CFS symptoms. 3 days ago I had a few beers and foolishly decided to take x6 0.5mg pills recreationally as I was getting sick of feeling sick all the time with the CFS. A whole four days later I am still withdrawing from the klonopin - feeling suicidal, headaches and stomach pains. 1 hour ago driving on my motorbike I had some fleeting thoughts of considering just swaying off the road and driving straight into something that would probably prove fatal...this came as a result of a very dark and nasty depression that came over me suddenly. However, I am feeling somewhat better now, and as I explained - there was no action behind the suicidal thought (which was just that *a thought*) we all get them from time to time I believe, even so called healthy people....it was just more evidence of how dangerous this drug can be. For the past 3 days I have been taking just 1x 0.5mg pill a day in an attempt to taper off and would like to completely come off this nasty drug. I know I have only been on it for 1 month, my main concern is the length of the withdrawal - does it reflect the time I have been taking the drug (1 month) hence 1 month of withdrawal symptoms? Any help or guidance very much appreciated, thank you.
