Yes! I've been taking Klonopin 2 mg (in 3 split doses) everyday for the past several years. I had to go off it once, for several days, and I noticed a decrease in paranoia, which was walking from my front door of my house to my car, parked in the driveway outside. Normally, on Klonopin, I feel like everyone in the neighborhood is looking at me, and I have lots of anxiety walking from my house to the car outside. When I had to go off Klonopin, I noticed that paranoia disappeared.
The same things goes for when I'm outside, getting out of my car and walking to a place, like a hair salon. I feel like all eyes are on me, and it's uncomfortable.
Thanks for the reply shana and for sharing your experience. It's strange that such an effective anti-anxiety drug can do this after continued use.
I've been feeling better after leaving the clonazepam alone for a few days. Like you say, the paranoia seems to subside fairly quickly.
I have been kind of jumpy though ... loud noises scare the s**t out of me, and if someone brushes against me unexpectedly as they squeeze past it makes me flinch. Hopefully this will pass soon.
I'll have to be careful to keep the clonaz for only occasional use, such as when I've got a stressful situation or similar to deal with.
I do like my substances though, and am very prone to developing "habits", both for calming stuff like benzos and the more stimulating s**t
You've been on Klonopin for a while. You must've built up quite a tolerance, or does it still work ok for you? Do you think you'll try to come off it at some point and switch to a different medication?
