i have been taking klonopin 1mg for about 3years or so. Prescribed 2 a day,sometimes I take half a day some times I'll go days without it. i know i am dependent though and have read all the horror stories in the world. i just wanna start a family and WILL NOT HAVE a drugged out baby. I have read some of the Ashton Manual and that was helpful into, finding a dr. who actually wants to start helping me switch to valium and taper down will not be easy. Any suggestions???
Not easy? What's easy anymore? You sound dedicated enough to do this, why not the Dr who is prescribing it, that would be the obvious choice. Isn't he/she involved in the decision to quit? Have you thought of (aside from finding a Dr) finding a recovery group to join? The support and fellowship are so crucial to what you are trying to do. It's a long road, but done right you can make it a one-way road out of this fog and into the light that is a drug free life. Hope this helps.
Hi, glad too here that you want too start a family, and bonus being responsible about it and thinking about your baby's health ;p My cousin is 38 weeks pregnant now! and she slowly but not too slow got off Klonipin befor getting pregnant it went like this..She was on 1mg 3x day, She would take 1mg in the morning 1/2mg in after noon and 1mg at night, then after just 3 or 4 days she would take 1mg in the morning, 1/2 mg in afternoon, and 1/2mg at night, after 3 or 4 days 1/2mg morning 1/2mg at night, go 3 4 days take 1/2mg eather in the morning or at night for 3 4 days then break the 1/2mg into 1/2 so like 1/3 or 1/4 and do that for 3 days and you don't have withdrawl symptoms she's the proof she never complained too me once about any unwanted symptoms.. So hope I helped you, and congradulations on the family thing ;p
Slow and steady wins the race. Break up the tablets as small as you can, then start taking a tiny bit less, dropping down on e a week or so. You can also add an hour to each dose when you get down to the small amounts. With a gradual decrease, over time, you will do fine. You have a good incentive and that's half the battle right there!
