Common Questions and Answers about Methadone klonopin

methadose

Klonopin is a benzo...it does not have avery powerful onset like xanax but is just as strong as xanax...i was told that valium is a better choice for detox as far as addiction to the benzo goes...sounded odd as valium got such a bad reputation when it came out but it was one of the first to really hit the markdet and be prescribed alot....i researched it and found that it is true...valium is safer than the two mentioned above..all should be used with caution...i used it during detox and ..
I recently got hold of some klonopin and I am keeping them to use if I end up c/t off vicodin. I took one when I first got them just to see how well it did and it really knocked me out, which is what I was looking for, to treat the jimmy leg syndrome of w/ds. Anyway, is there a danger of addiction to these things also?
I would like to know how to safely taper off klonopin (Rivotril).I SHOULD be taking 1mg 3 times a day, but for the last several years i've tripled my dose to 3/1mg 3 times a day. I was prescribed klonopin 7 yrs ago at the same time as anitdepressants. I've weaned myself off the antideprssants a few months ago. Why was i prescribed klonopin? Was it to optimize the antidepressants? Anyways, i'm feeling much better and all i need is this last step to be completely drug free.
I took klonopin with methadone, vicoden, ultram and even opana (a new extended release morphine) it didn't hurt me and I recommend to try a little at a time. We call them blues, which is the color of the larger dose and it takes away the anxiety of the pain. I liken it to a glass of wine and a hot jacuzzi - a nice way to take the edge off and finally sleep.
In the beginning it was working very well and slowly over time it is not working for him very well. His doctor decided to supplement the medication with Klonopin. He began on a very low dose of .5 and only took it once a day. He began telling me that he felt lethargic and tired all the time and he didn't know what was wrong. That was when I was told what he was taking and I began warning him of the dangers, side effects and possible withdrawal when he went off it.
The pain level was still so intense I was put on a cheaper drug...methadone...I have been taking my methadone with my klonopin for approx 7 years and I never had any problems combining the two, but do be aware that they are both nervous system depressants and can interfere with breathing even though I've never had any issues personally. My doctors are aware of all my meds.
Your doctor stopping your medication based solely on an entertainers death is too ridiculous to me for words.Secondly the 'stories' you hear about people dying from methadone and klonopin are usually people who are taking both,normally not under a doctors care.Methadone and benzos can be a fatal combination.I don't have any first hand knowledge with any type of benzo but from what I have learned here you are not supposed to stop them c/t you are supposed to taper.
He knows my history and that i was on methadone, he was prescribing me klonopin during that time and when i kicked off methadone he gave me a script of that too and tapered me over a 3 month period but only go to back to another clinic where i quit cold turkey. And now he give me lortab. I really don't know what to do. Some people say that lortab withdrawal isn't that bad, but ALL opiate DT's SUCK.
say ur on 60 mgs of methadone then you never taking klonopin before THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS... but i wason klonopin before adding the methadone..then my pain doc talked to my gpdoc and wanted to go to a short acting benzo witch is xanax..i like klonpin better... so yes if yoiu abuse both you can overdose....lets say your on both at 20 mgs of methadone,,and 2 mgs aday total...then you stop it longer than 2 weeks or more ..then you start taking them together can be fatel..

If you go to jail and are on 300 mg of methadone and are addicted to klonopin cna you die from withdrawl?
I am considering using Klonopin to help get myself free of opiates (morphine, methadone, oxys, etc.), but I am well aware that benzos are a similar "blessing" all their own. Can anyone tell me how long it takes to become addicted to Klonopin?
So I was at my doctors today getting my scripts refilled and he tells me "After a Year of writing me scripts" that He cant write me my script for Klonopin because taking my .05mg dose can kill me in my sleep when I take it with my 10mg Oxicontin. I've never heard of this but if it's true, why did he write this in the first place knowing that it would put me at risk and then he also tryed to have me take 20mg of Xanax instead and I refused them. Can Anyone tell me more about this.
my son is on 70 mgs of methadone down from 90mgs. He is also taking klonopin - 2mgs - 3 times a day for anxiety. I am under the impression that this is a dangerous mix. Anyone have any info on this combination?

And telling the Thread Starter that methadone is the worst drug to come off of isn't too comforting but I will tell you this.....my klonopin withdrawal was much worse than methadone ever was. Benzo withdrawal is definitely worse in my honest opinon and i would bet that anyone that has been addicted to methadone and benzo's particularly klonopin because of its long half life, would tell you that the detox from klonopin is much worse.
i was on a high dose of methadone for xever pain in my knees and lower back..120mgs aday..worked were i didnt have any pain...now on perks not meth..these dont do that much at all for me...the head dockter wants me back on methadone..i weened myself down 5 months ago..then put on meth again 10 mgs only it helped my pains not all of it though..my QUESTSHION IS SINCE I BEEN ON PERCOSETS 18 DAYS WITH NO METHADONE IF HE WANTS TO PUT ME ON 15 MGS TO START ADAY WITH...
DO NOT MIX XANAX W/ METHADONE it will kill you my sister overdosed on 2 one mg xanax and 2 10 mg methadone please dont it is very very lethal
i have the worst ringing in my ears, i'm tapering off methadone and i take clonidine (.2mg three times a day). that's alot while i still take the done. i only take that much cause i wanna sleep, i only get about 2 hours a day. anyhow, no doctor can help with the ringing, saying when i stop taking pills, ringing will go away. i still think i have a brain tumor, ringing is SO loud!
Klonopin 0.5 mg nightly for inner ear hypersensitivity was prescribed for me; however, I have yet to take it after reading all the negative info about it. I do not want to become addicted or go through withdrawal. I hate my dizzy, hypersensitive ear problem, but not sure if I want to take benzos to get rid of it or just suffer? I am not sure what to do. My mother was addicted to xanax and lortab for a long time and now she lives in an assisted living facility after TIAs, strokes, etc...
I drink very infrequently. Anyway, is Klonopin a drug that I can just take every once in awhile after having drank? Or is Klonopin a drug which you have to take according to a specific regimen?
I'm on day 3 of subutex withdrawal and I reduced to half a 0.4 pill and it's a lot easier than methadone. They cut me down to 2mg of methadone when I was about 21 and I had no withdrawals reducing to that dose, when I went from 2 to nothing it was hell, worse than heroin. Everyone is different but methadone is one evil drug, usually you use sub to come off methadone, I don't see why any doctor would put you on methadone from sub unless you told them it wasn't strong enough?
it is a matter of opinion in some cases cos they r all different...methadone does not block any drug atall...methadone is not a popular doc for most cos it does not have that "boost" other narcotics do like oxy or hydro..so considered safer if Quitting is what u want to do...using on top of methaodne is very dangerous...sub is another powerhouse//a partial agonist but very strong in its own right..it does block narcotics only as it wins the receptor site race....
I'm a 41yo guy suffering from anxiety and what I think is probably a moderate case of depression -- for the past 2 months. I have been using Klonopin (occasionally) to help with my anxiety systems, and to sleep. I'm about to start an SSRI (Celexa). However, someone just told me recently that Benzo's (especially Klonopin) would make my depression worse. Is this true?
