how can I help my son with cholozipam withdrawal

Hello

You can get him to a doctor.

This can be dangerous, and if you try to manage this, you can become responsible for a very bad outcome.

A doctor can prescribe a medication such as clonipine, a non-benzo, that is not addicting and can allevaite symptoms.

Some people need to be admitted to the hospital for withdrawal, depending on the situation.

Withdrawal unsupervised can cause seizures and other problems.

OFten a controlled taper, by the doctor, is needed.

I would take him to the ER if he can not see a doctor now.

OK, so that is an initial answer….

I have not heard back from you. Please let me know if you have more details or questions.

I want to assert again that this needs doctor management, can can be unacceptably dangerous and even life threatening without such management.

Find me anytime.

Again, I even suggest the ER if needed.
