Marci: slow taper off of clonazepam, or Klonopin.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)


This is my first time posting here. I have been on many psych meds and am currently coming off of two. The main struggle is with the benzo. I have had much difficulty getting below 1.5 mg. I have been working with my doctor but I am not sure how I like his idea of changing from one benzo to another. He said valium is much easier to taper off of. I have been able to cut back some on the 1.5 mg. I know it isn't going to be easy and there is never going to be the "right" time. Life keeps happening and if I wait until the perfect time it will never come. So I am just a tad under 1.5 mg right now. I seem to be doing okay but with all the meds that I have been on and for as long as I have been on them, my brain has suffered damage. I just hope and pray it heals as I continue to have the meds reduces. I am just looking for support as I endeavor to really continue on with the slow taper. Thank you,
