Klonopin, or Clonazepam, is a benzodiazepine that can treat stress, anxiety, panic disorders, seizures, and insomnia. When a person uses Klonopin for a month or longer, it can cause the body to develop a dependency on the drug. At this stage, if you try to quit the drug, Klonopin withdrawal symptoms can set in.
The main withdrawal symptoms include nausea and anxiety. Trying to quit Klonopin suddenly can also result in seizures because the body has become dependent on the drug.
Klonopin Withdrawal Symptoms
Klonopin acts on your body by blocking stress receptors and slowing it down. Under the effects of Klonopin, you feel extremely calm. When you stop taking Klonopin, your body is once again vulnerable to stress and anxiety, but this time your brain also becomes hyperactive.
The whole list of withdrawal symptoms includes:
- Trouble with coordination
- Nausea and vomiting
- Increased body temperature
- Anxiety and panic attacks
- Hand tremors
- Increased heart and respiratory rate
- Elevated blood pressure
Many disorders that individuals use Klonopin to treat will return over the first few days of quitting the drug. Klonopin withdrawal can be dangerous for your health. It’s a good option to check into a rehab facility like Crestview Recovery for quick treatment.
Treating Klonopin Addiction
Klonopin addiction treatment needs to occur under the supervision of trained professionals. At Crestview Recovery, we have a step-by-step program that we use to treat Klonopin withdrawal symptoms and safely transition you back to a healthy life.
Depending on how long you were on the drug, the withdrawal symptoms can last for a few weeks to a few months. Chronic substance abuse can even lead to changes in the biochemistry of the brain, resulting in some symptoms lasting for a few years. These long-term symptoms are called post-acute withdrawal symptoms (PAWS).
- Difficulty remembering
- Low energy

To treat Klonopin withdrawal symptoms, the practitioner will make a note of your age, how long you took Klonopin for, and at what dose.
