    Default Lorazapem and clonazapam withdrawal after two weeks use - tapering advice needed

    Hi

    I have been on lorazapem and clonazapam for about 2 weeks since maybe 27 april (can't remember the exact date) and am experiencing bad withdrawal effect of heart palpitations and negative anxious thoughts that has been most intense in recent years.


    I will try my best to detail what I have taken below, as my memory is still sketchy.

    From 27 april till 7 april - 1 pill (500mcg) clonazapam in the day, 1 pill (0.5mg) lorazapam in the night
    8 may - 4 pill (2mg) lorazapam in the night
    9 may - 4 pill (2mg) lorazapam in the day

    Stopped taking benzos totally after 9 may. Heavy alcohol use on 9 may, passed out. 10 may woke up with a bad panic attack, heart palpitations and negative thoughts etc that has been the most intense in recent years. Been like that for the whole of 10 may, couldn't sleep because of heart palpitations on 10 may.

    11 may night i took 1 pill lorazapam (0.5mg) to sleep and i probably slept a few hours.

    Advice would be appreciated for tapering. Thank you.

    You've only been taking the benzos for two weeks which means you shouldn't need to taper slowly, assuming this is the first time you've ever been on them, however your comment about heavy alcohol use concerns me. Not knowing why you were given the benzos or what your history of alcohol use is, I can't really give advice. I think you should work with whatever doctor gave you those drugs. Best of luck to you!
