I've been on clonazepam 0.5 twice a day for the past three months to help cope with my T. I developed it four months ago. I am thankful it was available when this started. It helped me get through some really rough days. I am at the point where I would like to taper off the drug if possible. I stopped taking it yesterday and my T has really spiked. Sleeping is difficult with the ringing this loud. Does any one know if the spike is usually temporary after someone stops taking medication?
