15 mg oral Pharms - Clonazepam (daily)
[Erowid Note: The dose described in this report is very high, potentially beyond Erowid's 'heavy' range, and could pose serious health risks or result in unwanted, extreme effects. Sometimes extremely high doses reported are errors rather than actual doses used.]
I'll make this short. I'm an addict and have been for the last 23 years of my life. I cannot just do a little amount. I started buying some clonazepam from these people I met that were customers that came into my store and quickly got to share what drugs they've taken and all. Well I had been at my job for almost three years. I met them 2 months before I quit. I would at first just occasionally take 2mg at night and poof, sleepy time. Then on my last day of work I met them at 10am to buy some and proceed to work.

[Erowid Note: Driving while intoxicated, tripping, or extremely sleep deprived is dangerous and irresponsible because it endangers other people. Don't do it!]
Well I took 2 during the morning and was nodding out and forgetting things all day that my boss knew something was wrong and kept yelling at me to wakeup. At first I didn't give a shit, but I finnally got rude and said I quit and am not coming back. I probably took another 4 mg on the way home and don't remember the 20mile drive through the city at all. Dumb I know. But I woulda never gotten in the car like that if I knew what I was doing.

Well over the next year I was unemployed but stareted selling my things and buying buttloads of clonazepam. I would finish off 30mg in 2 days and be blacked out for 4 days from that excess. I would wake outta my blackout with sores from falling all the hell over the place. I would eat food like a pig and spill it everywhere. When a family member mouthed off to me I'd get aggressive instead of calmly speak about the problem. Well I was the problem and couldn't figure it out because I was blacked out 70% of the time. Great long acting benzo but better to use for sleep not during the day. I really didn't mean it to get so bad but I am again an addict and I just didn't care in fact I kinda enjoyed the break from reality. Unfortunately reality still went on for those that loved and cared about me and that was wrong to do I coulda od'ed or choked on some food or driven my car or walked into a street without looking with my dog or anything really. It totally is like Ambien in large doses minus the hallucinations but to get aggressive on a benzo means I probably was taking way too much. Glad to be alive and over it.
