I have no idea Jennifer.I just wanted to post so you don't feel alone.Just wait and people who know about those kinds of things will answer. I wish you all the best.
I have been on .05 for over 4 years. I would not go off them without beinging monitored by a doctor. Souds like you've done a great job a tappering..best wishes
I think this is a doctors question, but i have been through that...with klonopin
will send u a pm
If I were you I will taper down slowly,you are taking now 0.50mgx2times a day,right? I will go down to 0.25mg 1 time and .050mg 1 time a day,then 0.25mg x2times a day and then 0.25 once a day,then quit.I'll have a doctor monitor you,specially because the pulse rate,your heart beat can jump to a higher level,your blood pressure can increase too,and I hope you don't get anxiety attacks or muscle spasms.
I took Xanax 10 to 8mg a day for about 3 years,I know, way too much,tried to wean off slowly and had a hard time with anxiety and muscle spasms and heart beat.Finally went to a hospital to detox,and was put in Klonopin 4mg a day,then 3mg a day,now I'm down to 1.25mg a day(divided in 3 doses),monitored by the same psychiatric doctor that treated me in the hospital and by a general doctor for heart pulse and blood pressure issues. I do not have anxiety anymore,but I'm having a hard time with the muscle spasms that are present the whole day,it hurts a lot,believe me.I will never will touch a benzo anymore in my life,this experience had been a nightmare in hell.
Hey Jen,you know that I don't know anything about benzo's but it looks like Bob gave you some good advice.I just wanted to offer my support and tell you that you're doing great......Peace...Kim
I'M ON .5 2 X ADAY WHICH IS 1 MG IT'S 2 /5's ADAY. SO WHAT WOULD YOU DO ?
Girl.I will cut one of the 0.50mg pill in half and take that dose,0.25mg and as the second dose the other 0.50mg pill(so you will be cutting 0.25mg but still taking two doses).Take that for at least 3 days,that is the minimum safe allotted time for withdrawal from benzos.Then the other week do the same with the second pill, so will be cutting another 0.25mg and taking 0.50mg a day, then the following week take only one dose of 0.25mg a day,that might be the hardest part because your body will notice the lack of Klonopin in your system and you might feel some anxiety ,maybe headaches,muscle cramps, etc,but may be not.That will be yor last week.Remember to have a doctor to monitor your blood pressure and pulse rate.If you feel anxiety or any other symptom related to the withdrawal from benzo,don't be ashamed to contact a psychiatrist,that will help .
