I was prescribed 0.5mg of klonopin daily to help with severe anxiety. I was recently diagnosed with adult ADHD and me and my doctor realized that a lot of my anxiety stems from issues with that. I never took the 0.5mg of Klonopin daily like it was prescribed, instead I took .25mg every other day, a day without in between doses, and only took the 0.5mg when my anxiety was especially high ( maybe once a week?). I am now on Concerta ER 18mg and was told to quit taking the Klonopin. Am I at a low enough dose to quit without being at risk of seizures? This is my primary concern, I believe I can handle any withdrawal symptoms that may pop up
You should be fine you didn’t take it every day and it’s a very low dose. I also, have Adult ADD. When, my ADD is untreated I have worse panic attacks. I was on concerta before, I switched to Vyvanse.
Best of luck.
