i didnt have agumentation for me it just plain didnt work. The only drug that caused agumentation for me was mirapex. Sinement and requip did nothing to stop it but it didnt make it worse either.

OH I have fib...

Well when I took Klonopin I took it for about two months and I just stoped taking it. I was having some real bad side affects so I just quit no wheening involved and I had no withdrawl from it. So just shows that we are all different.
