I've been off of clonazepam for about three days now. I had gotten a re-fill to hold me off until my next doctors appointment as I believed my Zoloft wasn't really doing justice. After the first day it wasn't so bad. I'm sure the longer half life had some gain to it, but I knew I was going to be in for a loop. The second and third day (Today) i've had horrible headaches.
The second day I noticed:
irritability - communicationwise
Vivid, bad dreams.
Today I suffered a bad headache, still having a headache after two swigs of Jameson.. all of the nights that i've been off the Clonazepam I have had really vivid, bad dreams.
Today I kicked in a door, ended up having to replace the door, paint the door, and change the door knob. I was extremely irritable... physically. and very downing upon myself.
I feel worthless. I really do, and I never was the depressed type. This headache hurts horribly... I want to drink myself to sleep because I know as soon as I lie back down tonight I'm going to have another vivid, horrible dream.
I don't see my doc until the 6th of next month, I can stick it out... I just hate the dreams... I hate the headaches and I hate the irritability.
Are these withdrawals?
What's causing these vivid, bad dreams? I've had them before after completely stopping Clonazepam in the past..
Why isn't this damn Zoloft helping me out?
