clonazepam

Well! I'm in the same boat as you. As said before I've been fighting to get off for months and I realize that when I hit the 0.75 mark last April is the period when my legs started to bother me.

clonazepam

I've been on benzo.org.uk for months and I'm sure that the other med covered your withdrawal. It is almost impossible to taper off this much in 6 months. If so I'M glad for you...

Godd luck

clonazepam

I've been on it since 88 at 2.5 mgs per day and in 200 decided to get off and I'm down to 0.375 and looking forward to the day I'm off completely.

According to benzo.org.uk its worse getting off this junk than heroin and I believe it.

marijuana

I cant take mirapex or any of that med type so I'm thinking of marijuana. Here in canada its legal for medical purposes but available in pills. I've never tried it but some friends cultivate it and without any addditives. So what is your opinion on this?

Thanks
