I've been taking 3 to 5 milligrams of Klonopin daily for 10 years. I hate being physically dependent on the drug and hate the memory loss and other side effects. However, I have been too scared to start weening off. This back and forth has been going on long enough and I am ready to do something about it. My doctor recommends the slowest ween possible, something in the ballpark of .25 decrease of one dose for a period of weeks and then maybe more. I'm the one who has to take the initiative, he is on board. I do get terrified when I read the horror stories on these sites and have avoided them for years as a result. Has anyone been through this at this high a level? Any thoughts?
