I am so frustrated with my anxiety, I’ve been on 2mg of clonazepam for about 15 years after serving time in the military. I also take 40 mg of propanolal for blood pressure and anxiety. I was doing just fine with the anxiety attacks and my blood pressure was under control. Now out of the blue this doctor at the VA decided to cut my clonazepam by .05 and now it’s been a 4 month long nightmare trying to cut back and deal with the withdrawals. I made it to 1.5 but my panic attacks are back in full force. I went back to the VA and told them I need to go back on 2mg. I started taking 2mg again and it seems to have an adverse affect now. Almost every night when I’m trying to fall asleep my heart is pounding and I’m up most of the night just laying in bed eyes wide open but yawning wanting to sleep. I’m legit scared . If i don’t take my benzodiazepine I have panic attacks and if I do take them my heart is pounding to where I can’t sleep because I feel like I’m gonna die. Taking benzodiazepines was the biggest mistake of my life. Now I’m living in a nightmare. I don’t know what to do plus the VA doesn’t have a clue. Is there anyone out there who can kinda relate?
