I take 2mg. of Klonopin daily, and I think the pharmacy miscounted and I found myself like a week short of my medication, so my wonderful son went on line and did some research for me. He found that if there is no history of seizures that it would probably not happen, but it could in a very small percentage. I made it through until I saw my Dr. with no seizures. Good luck and don't worry so much. :)
Yes, seizures (or mini-seizures) certainly can occur as you reduce a benzo medication. It is always advisable to see your doctor to get an anti-seizure medication to take while you're reducing or tapering off this med. Seizures do not occur for everyone, but they are a considerable risk - even for those who have never had a seizure. (I work with detoxing women, and witness these occurences.) Many drugs will produce side effects as we taper or stop, but the greatest danger comes with reducing benzo drugs or alcohol - these are substances that can have fatal consequences with detoxing.
