I have been tapering off Klonopin for the past 7-8 months. For 10 years I took 0.5mg once a day (in the morning). I have successfully tapered to 0.0625mg once a day. I have done a steady and careful taper, under doctor supervision.

However earlier today, I accidentally took the 0.5mg pill (uncut), as I was in a rush and thought it was a different medication. My doctor told me this is OK and I should continue with the taper and resume the 0.0625mg the next day. Obviously it was devastating to find out I accidentally did this, when I've been on this journey that has taken almost a year and have tried so hard. I feel as though I have gone back to the beginning.

Is my doctor right in saying I am OK to resume back to the taper?

Thank you
