I'm sorry to hear that you're having very typical withdrawal symptoms from Zoloft and klonopin, especially when fast tapers are involved.  They're pure hell.  I bet it's been terrible, and I'm glad you found us.

Here are some links that might be useful.  Again, while these are typical symptoms, the good news is that they do--with time and patience--go away.

Akathisia vs restlessness, anxiety, agitation

What is withdrawal syndrome?

 

tics, twitches, fasciculations, spasms, cramps, restless legs

 

 

We don't recommend many supplements, but 3 that we do recommend are magnesium, omega-3, and melatonin. Here are the links for info about those. 

Magnesium

Omega 3 Fish Oil

Melatonin
