    Default Withdrawal after 1-week benzodiazepine?

    Is it possible to get withdrawal symptoms after stopping a benzodiazepine (Clonazepam) treatment of just one week (1mg daily). What about 0,5mg daily?

    I suppose anything is possible but this is a very unlikely one. Is there something you are not telling us?

    We can help if we know the details. God bless.

    My psychiatrist prescribed me Clonazepam for insomnia but I wanted to wait until the holidays to start treatment, so I can properly adjust my sleep structure and try to never disrupt it again. He prescribed me 1mg a day so I would be doing just what he told me but some weeks later, I think it's safe.

    Thanks in advance.

    By the way, I'm really not hiding anything, I never used any prescription drug before and I'm not an alcoholic or anything.

    I think you will be just fine but stop NOW, don't wait or you'll be visiting other parts of this forum sooner then you think. Take it as a blessing, the drug served its purpose; do yourself a big favor and stay off it.
