I'm worried about having seizures due to withdrawels from Xanax. Please advise.

If your doc does it right you can. You're xanax should be tapered down while you are starting the klonopin.
Hello Spotty69. Yes you can. I would suggest a weaning/taper off from the Xanax and a transition at the same time to the Klonopin. A Benzodiazepine is what it is. One short/acting the other long/acting. Your system will adapt simply because the drug in either form is in your metabolizm and recognizes that fact. Not to worry in regards to a seizure.

Klonopin is a very strong anticonvulsant medication and was originally introduced for seizures. Like they said, just work closely with your doctor to switch and express your concern about possible seizures. As long as you've got one of them in your system at the appropriate dosage, you shouldn't have to worry about seizures.
I switched from alprazolam to klonipin with no withdrawal at all.You should be fine :)
I am nine days into my switch and was on 3-4mgs of xanax. Doing fine
old thread I know but How did it go? I am in the same situation. Doc is switching me from 1mg 2x per day of Xanax XR to 1mg of Klonopin 2x a day due to the fact that I have been taking Xanax for so long we suspect tolerance and do not wanna up the dose... Just wondering how you did on the transition...
