    So I'm trying not to rely on the clonazepam as much as possible. Todsy I woke up decided against taking it. Now at work I got that anxious feeling in my gut and now my mind is racing trying to figure out what the root of this is. Does any one also just get anxiety with out an answer why your getting it. I feel like if I knew what I was anxious about I would be better at battling it.

    No mystery to me what the problem is here... . You stopped taking a strong prescription drug with a doctors supervision. Klonapines are no exception to any other medications. There will always be adverse effects. Klonapines are a very strong nervous system sepressant . I think you should go back in it and ween yourself off. Klonapines ain't no joke.

    My doctor prescribed it as a PRN and wants me to only take it days I feel like I will be anxious. And wants me to not take it some days to see how it goes. Today it didn't go. It was about 2-3 hours of the anxious feeling not unbearable but enough to get my mind going

    Try to keep an account. Write it down each day if you took the pill or not and if you had any anxieties or not. Also, try to remember what it is that is on your mind of late. You really have to focus on your thoughts to find out what they are.

    A therapist from the crisis team told me that she once met a lady who was thrown into panic attacks because of a folded over bit of curtain. She didn't realise it at the time, but the source was years earlier. What happened years earlier was that her husband had died after a road accident. In the hospital room where he died there was a flipped over bit of curtain. It was that bit of curtain that was sending her into a panic. It was subconsciously reminding her of the time when her husband died. Of course, it took her years to realise what it was, but she knew in the end and was able to deal with it easier.

    Try to see where your subconscious mind is. It may help you towards healing. If you know what's causing something you may be able to help yourself. Or at least knowing why will help a little.
