Rivotril Withdrawal and Tapering Help

Rivotril withdrawals become acute 30-40 hours after rapidly or abruptly stopping, causing severe psychological and physical symptoms. Our NonProfit has been helping people withdraw safely for over 14 Years.   Contact the Prescription Drug Experts for help!

Rivotril is a benzodiazepine that has muscle relaxant, sedative, anticonvulsant and hypnotic properties. Rivotril is considered a ‘highly potent’ benzodiazepine with a rapid onset of action meaning that it reaches peak blood levels in one to four hours after oral administration, but leaves the body in 18-60 hours.

One-third of Rivotril patients will develop tolerance to the drug in 2-4 weeks and will suffer from the Benzodiazepine Withdrawal Syndrome, a grouping of extremely painful symptoms that can last many months. Even after short-term use (7-14 days) Rivotril can prove to be too challenging to just stop, therefore a slow taper is recommended. Contact Us if you need help tapering Rivotril or have questions.

Rivotril history and info

Klonopin (Rivotril) was brought to market in 1975 for the treatment of epilepsy. Dr. Leo Sternbach, an award winning chemist, helped the Swiss drug conglomerate Roche Pharmaceutical build its U.S. division, after fleeing Europe when the Nazis were threatening to invade Europe in 1941. Sternbach went on to patent 241 drugs, including Valium, and accounted for 40% of Roche's worldwide sales. The use of Klonopin (Rivotril) expanded beyond epilepsy and was used for anxiety, insomnia, muscle tension and many other ailments.

Rivotril enhances the neurotransmitter GABA, which is the most common inhibitory, or calming neurotransmitter. Therefore Rivotril has a profound effect on nearly every aspect of the body and brain. As tolerance to the drug occurs, the calming effect diminishes and breakthrough anxiety and extreme excitability occurs. Many misinterpret tolerance for a worsening of anxiety and increase the dosage, only to reach tolerance again. Chronic use of Rivotril, like all benzodiazepines, causes a down regulation of GABA. It is this action that is responsible for the widespread withdrawal symptoms.

Tolerance to Rivotril's anticonvulsant effect occurs frequently and chronic use leads to tolerance for the anti-anxiety properties. One milligram of Rivotril is approximately equivalent to twenty milligrams of Diazepam (Valium), making Klonopin a 'highly potent' benzodiazepine. 

Abrupt withdrawal of Rivotril can cause seizures, severe withdrawal symptoms and be life-threatening. A gradual dose reduction is recommended.
