    I am slowing weaning myself off of the Klonopin. Was taking .25 for sleep at night.

    Now I am taking 1/2 of that, and guess what? I am starting to feel a little better.

    I asked my Rheumy if it was possible that I am that sensitive to medication that the reduction would affect me positively and she said "yes"

    For those of you with severe exhaustion, like me, think about the meds you are taking and whether they are making you worse. I am severely sensitive to meds and I can't believe I haven't figured this out earlier. It really makes me mad, since I had asked several doctors about this

    It makes sense though - I feel like I am getting a better nights sleep. I have read that K interferes with Stage 4 sleep and I am starting to believe it

    Anyone else experience worsening of symptoms with meds?

    But it was the Klonopin which allowed me to get better quality of sleep. Of course, it could be the Guai working too; it's hard to tell.

    I need the Klonopin during the day for anxiety and sensory overload.

    I do know that Klonopin has made some people feel tired during the day.

    Love, Mikie
