Presto: Introducing myself


Recommended Posts

Hello all! Just a quick introduction. I was originally prescribed Klonopin approx. 20 yrs ago for panic disorder. Have tried to taper off this benzo 3 times since 2006 including 2 dry-cut attempts and 1 much better water titration taper. But, encountered a setback on my recent water titration and have updosed while deciding what to do next. So glad to have some new people to share experiences and ideas with! I welcome any suggestions on minimizing weight loss due to nausea while tapering because I have a very low body weight.


Thanks and I'm so glad to join in the discussions,

Welcome to the forum, Presto. In addition to dealing with antidepressants, we have a number of members who are also tapering off of benzos or planning to do so, and I think you'll find lots of support and good advice here. There's even a special sub-forum for members whose primary concern is getting off benzos, but help yourself to everything that suits you.


This forum was a tremendous help to me after a too-fast taper from Lexapro and dealing with the aftermath. After eight and a half months I'm not entirely over withdrawal yet, but I can see the end from here. Tally-ho!

Psychotropic drug history: Pristiq 50 mg. (mid-September 2010 through February 2011), Remeron (mid-September 2010 through January 2011), Lexapro 10 mg. (mid-February 2011 through mid-December 2011), Lorazepam (Ativan) 1 mg. as needed mid-September 2010 through early March 2012
