I am 21 years old, 6'1", and 190 lbs and have been taking 1mg of Klonopin twice a day equalling 2mgs daily for about the past 10 months. Today I talked to my doctor about slowly tapering off and instead of perscribing me 1mg twice a day he prescribed .5mg 4 times a day as needed. I am looking for advice or a specific schedule to go down from 2mgs daily to 1.5mgs a day by the end of 30 days. Thanks your for any help, insight, and information!

I recently got out of a drug treatment rehabilitation center when I entered I was on Klonopin 3× A day as needed for anxiety I am also 6 months pregnant so was needing to taper off the medication which I've been on for several years. they put me on lorazepam or (Ativan) taper .5 mg 4× times a day lorazepam is a shorter acting benzodiapene there for it leaves the body faster for one week then second week I was tapered to .5mg 2× a day for one week then .5mg a day for one week then after that the medication was stopped Klonopin is a long acting benzodiapene lorazepam is a short acting benzodiapene means it leaves the body faster I hope this helps give you a idea it should be a slow taper to avoid withdrawals 3 weeks was plenty and I had minimal discomfort when the drug was stopped completely side affects were mostly increased anxiety and insomnia
