I was taking Clonazepam daily for about two years; it was supposed to be occasional but I liked it and went daily. One day I skipped a dose; the next day I became so depressed I literally could not walk. Electric tingling sensation. I tapered to zero in three weeks. Stayed off for a few years.

Started again here, where all I need is the money. Same dosage, 1 mg in the morning to get back to sleep. Longer than the first time.

I am not addicted. I can quit for weeks and have no effects at all. I don’t understand this, but I’ve quit several times just to check if I’m hooked. I can tell I’m not because they still work; back when I was hooked they basically did nothing.

This is totally contrary to everything I have read.
