    Yes, this is due, according to Dr. Baraniuk from Georgetown University, to an overactive CNS. He suggests low dose Klonipin to bring down the overactivity. Dr. Cheney also suggests this medication. It has some controversy associated with it but I am going to start this next month at a very low dose (.25mg to .5mg at night).

    The startle response drives everyone around me crazy.

    when I was weaning myself off klonopin. Klonopin does dampen it but it returns with a vengeance when stopping it.
