I was diagnosed with anxiety eight years back. I have been taking Klonopin for eight years and was never told about the addictive nature of this medication. With the help of my new doctor, I am tapering my 1 mg Klonopin dosage. Last week, I took .5 mg every day. This week, she wants me to take .5 mg every other day, the next week, every third day, and so forth until my script is gone. On the fifth day, I started having headaches, fatigue, nausea, lack of appetite, and heightened anxiety. Is this normal for trying to quit Klonopin, and how long can these symptoms last?
