I'm a 23 year old male. I have been on Xanax 1 MG 3x a day. And a 1/2 of a Xanax at bedtime. (But sometimes I can do with only 3) for about 4 years now. Today my psychiatrist prescribed me Klonopin 2 MG 3x a day. She says 1 of those equals 1 Xanax. But it won't be long before I'll not have to take as many Klonopin as I do Xanax. Because, I'm switching over to Taper off of all medication. So, I'll be replacing the Klonopin with Xanax because she says Klonopin has a longer half life. And that I won't feel the horrible withdraws and "pre-seizure like symptoms" between doeses. Has anyone ever done this and been successful on here? She's said she's had many patients be successful and I won't notice the transition. I'll only notice that I'll start needing less and less Klonopin because it last longer and I'll be tapering. Thank you for reading and answering I'm BRAND NEW and just want the best advice. I believe my psychiatrist wants what's best for me, I just wanted a second opinion.
