Go to Drug Detox for an Addiction to Klonopin
Klonopin or Clonazepam is a benzodiazepine from the same category as Valium or Xanax. Due to its sedative and relaxing properties, patients often take it to treat their anxiety or manage their panic disorders. But, as with most benzodiazepines, the line between regular use and abuse is rather thin, and many cross it without even realizing.
Although functioning properly without your daily dose of Klonopin may seem borderline impossible, it’s important to know there is always a way out. Understand what the recovery process will require and how long it will take is one of the first steps towards treating your addiction.
How Painful Can Withdrawal Be?
Depending on the severity of the addiction, its duration, co-occurring disorders, and other health factors, Klonopin withdrawal symptoms vary from individual to individual. Some may only experience a few symptoms but very intense, while others will feel a combination of symptoms that vary from mild to severe.
The most common physical symptoms include fatigue, headaches, lightheadedness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, sweating, stomach aches, muscle spasms or cramps, high blood pressure, or seizures. Psychologically, patients can experience anxiety, depression, irritability, mood swings, cravings, difficulties concentrating, lack of motivation, or insomnia.
How Long Do Withdrawal Symptoms Last?
Klonopin withdrawal symptoms will start one to three days after the patient stops using it. It’s duration largely depends on the amount of Klonopin the patient is used to taking, the length of their addiction, the patient’s metabolism or if the patient combined it with other drugs or alcohol.
Here’s a general timeline of the withdrawal process:
Early withdrawal: Within 2-4 days after the patient stops using Klonopin, they begin experiencing symptoms, such as anxiety, restlessness, stomach problems and panic attacks.
The peak of withdrawal: The symptoms are the most intense between day seven and 14 days of the detox process. Symptoms include insomnia, diarrhea, or tremors.
Late withdrawal: Within 14 to 28 days after the patient has stopped using Klonopin, the symptoms begin subsiding.
Post-acute withdrawal syndrome: This period can last anywhere from a few weeks to several months during which patients can still experience some psychological issues.
How Do People Safely Taper off This Drug?
Doctors use two main processes to help patients flush the substance out of their bodies: tapering and medical detox.
Tapering consists of gradually reducing the dose over a period of weeks, according to a personalized schedule that the doctor creates for the patient. That way, the body slowly starts to adapt to smaller doses of the drug, avoiding any violent reactions that could occur if the patient stops taking the drug abruptly.
As far as medical detox goes, patients will enroll in a facility where professionals will monitor and take care of them 24/7. A team of doctors and nurses will offer pharmacological treatment, as well as the moral support the patient needs to get over any emotional or mental issues they may experience during withdrawal.
What Medications Can Help Treat Withdrawal Symptoms?
During a regular benzodiazepine detox process, physicians replace the Klonopin with another substance that is then slowly tapered off according to a schedule. This method can help the body overcome its dependence and adapt to functioning without the substance.
The doctor will prescribe several medications to help patients manage the withdrawal symptoms and make the entire process more comfortable. Antidepressants for depression or suicidal behaviors, melatonin for insomnia, anticonvulsant medications for seizures, or selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors are just a few of the medications that a physician can prescribe.
How Can a Medical Detox Program Help?
Klonopin withdrawal can be a difficult process to endure, so the best option is to undergo a medical treatment and a management program under the direct supervision of a professional team. Complications like hallucinations or seizures can occur at any time, which is why around the clock medical supervision is the safest option one can choose for Klonopin detox.
For people that are struggling with addiction issues, even the thought of undergoing a withdrawal process can make them uncomfortable. That is why many of them choose to postpone going into treatment or try detoxing on their own.
However, you shouldn’t take the detox process lightly. There is no reason for it to become a source of overwhelming stress. Anyone can successfully undergo a detox treatment if they have the right resources, a professional medical team to supervise them, and a healthy support group they can lean on.
