I have been taking .5 mg 3 x day for well over 10 years trying to wean off now.is there a medical reason to get off clonazepam . Doctor prescribed it over 10 years ago and if I even go down to 2 1/2, I have such outbursts of rage and paranoia . I am able to control my anxieties to function normally with it... before it I was suicidal... I dont want to go back to that place in my life and feel that life is good with my meds. I am 68
