Re: Klonopin
Feb 25, 2010
I'm not sure how to taper benzos, all I know is I didn't taper from taking 1 mg of xanax daily for a month and three days later I had two grand mal seizures. I think Klonopin has a longer half life and the withdrawals aren't supposed to be as bad as xanax, I could be wrong though. I know for suboxone, another drug I have to taper off, the general rule is to taper about 10% every few days or a week. That's a totally different drug though. Can you get in touch with your doctor that prescribed the Klonopin or were you taking them recreationally? can you call your pdoc? I don't wanna tell you a taper schedule, as I have no experience tapering benzos. I think I have a low seizure threshold though, so if you didn't taper, you'd probably be okay but you should, just to make it more comfortable/minimize risk. Good luck!
