Not good choice: The medication you are put is very short acting benzodiazepine versus Clonazepam which is long acting . Benzodiazepines should be used with care and caution because they are associated with lots of problem . Addiction is one and withdrawal is the other . What you were experiencing is not typical of benzodiazepine withdrawal . Nevertheless you need to be watchful. Talk to psychiatrist and seek he.

What is your Dx?: I do not understand why you would be on Effexor (venlafaxine) xr and fluoxetine together. This may be the reason why the Klonopin was not working. I suggest that you review your diagnosis with your dr. If you are not seeing a psychiatrist then obtain a referral to see one. Perhaps psychological testing by a psychologist may help when discerning a diagnosis is a problem or a second opinion by another psychiatris.
