Relieves Withdrawl Stress

Citation:   HomeBrewed. "Relieves Withdrawl Stress: An Experience with Chamomile (exp96643)". May 31, 2018.

4 Tbsp oral Chamomile (tea)


I am currently going through withdrawal symptoms from going off of prescribed Clonazepam (Klonopin). After reading some reviews on different sites, I decided to head down to my local herbalist to pick up some Chamamile.

I mixed the chamomile with 16 oz boiling water for about five minutes, strained and drank over ice. The tea was incredibly soothing, and I was feeling the depressant effects after about two gulps. This sedated feeling (As well as some very mild euphoria and chattiness) continued for about 20-30 minutes after taking the last sip.

Definitely not a strong herb, but it does its job. I have been feeling quite anxious since going off the Klonopin, and the tea was quite soothing. I will be making it again, but next time I might add some lemon balm to the chamomile or some honey to the tea itself for taste, since it has a taste between apple and general herb-y taste. General rule of thumb is to mix 2tbsp Chamomile/8oz of Water.
