benzo is klonopin

SSRI is Prozac 


We generally recommend coming off the SSRI first, but it depends on how long you've been on each drug and if the benzo was just used periodically for a short time or if you've been on it continuously for more than 2 - 4 weeks. 


Once you set up a signature, we can give you more advice (please see Altostrata's link in the post above).


Here is some more information to read over as you have time:

Please continue to use this thread to ask questions and document your taper.

I am not a medical professional and this is not medical advice, but simply information based on my own experience, as well as other members who have survived these drugs.
