How to Manage Klonopin Withdrawal Symptoms

How to Manage Klonopin Withdrawal Symptoms

Klonopin users adjust to functioning under the influence of the drug. Bodies change what and how much of different chemicals they produce, and individuals grow accustomed to turning to Klonopin in times of stress. While users gradually become dependent on the drug, ending drug use is rarely as gradual of a process. The brain and body must adjust abruptly, if Klonopin use is stopped, and this can result in physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms.

Klonopin Withdrawal Symptoms

The following are potential Klonopin withdrawal symptoms:

  • Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
  • Numbness or tingling in limbs
  • Rapid heartbeat or heart palpitations
  • Hallucinations
  • Dizziness
  • Loss of memory
  • Panic attacks

Withdrawal symptoms or fear of these symptoms can cause users to continue to take Klonopin. However there are ways to manage symptoms and reduce or even eliminate pain and discomfort.

Managing Klonopin Withdrawal Symptoms

The first step in managing withdrawal symptoms is finding professional help and guidance. Addiction specialists know the safest methods for withdrawal and can provide individualized detox plans that match your health needs. Other steps to managing withdrawal symptoms include the following:

  • Plan. Plan your recovery with the help of addiction specialists, and decide when, where and how you will begin your recovery.
  • Care for your body and brain. Exercise, eat properly, get enough rest and put yourself in an environment that promotes peace and relaxation.
  • Understand the withdrawal process: Learn about withdrawal symptoms and what you can expect during detox.
  • Communicate. Talk with family, therapists and more about your emotions, experiences and struggles.

Detox is not easy, but it is a relatively brief part of the recovery process. With medical supervision and personal support you can manage your withdrawal symptoms and begin your recovery.
