... such a low dose will I feel withdrawal quicker and it go away sooner? I tapered50% once and I felt the pain 6 days later. This time day 3days later??
Just to clarify - are you taking 1mg of klonopin 3x/day, for a total of 3mg/day? One important question is, how long have you been taking it, and for what, exactly. The longer you've been on it, the more slowly you need to wean off it. I made the mistake last month of cutting my dose by more than 50% each day - it was horrible, and it was a stupid thing to do. I was just so tired of taking it and fearing the dr would withdraw me anyway. It affects the GABA receptors in your body and can change them over time. My next question is, do you absolutely have to go off it if it's working well? The max dose for Klonopin is usually 4mg/day, so 3mg./day is not a 'low dose.' I know it's tempting to withdraw quicker (oh, how I know), but it "won't go away sooner" and will be much much harder on your body/brain, and you don't want that. You mentioned the word 'pain' - are you taking it for pain, or panic disorder, or???
