Generally not: Unless you are on high doses and stop cold turkey. Clonazepam has long acting metabolites which is somewhat of a safe guard against withdral sx.

There are no guarenties in medicine! better to be safe ...Read more

I'm going through Zoloft (sertraline) withdrawal and I take Vicodin. Will taking Vicodin stop or slow the recovery process from coming off of Zoloft (sertraline)?

I'm going through Zoloft (sertraline) withdrawal and I take Vicodin. Will taking Vicodin stop or slow the recovery process from coming off of Zoloft (sertraline)?

No: These two medications act on the body in separate ways, so the use of Vicodin is not recommended for symptoms of withdrawal from Zoloft (sertraline). I would recommend that you discuss this with the Doctor who prescribed the Zoloft (sertraline) so that you can be appropriately weaned off the Zoloft (sertraline), if it is indicated. ...Read more

Detox: Please, listen to experience. It is never wise to self medicate or to self detox from any addictive substance. You are not choosing the right or best medications. Seizing, blood pressure issues, and the nausea of withdrawal can be very difficult. Benzos are just as addicting and as dangerous as opiates for a brain with the disease of addiction. ...Read more
