Presently, after having 2 - set backs, my dose & mg. times are - 5:30am-.25mg., 9:30am- .12.5mg.(1/8th), 1:30pm- .25mg. I am now on my 12th day & on the 18th day - I will cut one of the .25mg. doses down to .12.5mg.1/8th: QUESTION: Do I reduce the 5am, or the 1pm dose? Then when all 3 dose times are at .12.5mg., after another 14 days on each remaining one, which time frames & in what order would be the best to eliminate?
To be totaly honest, I'm a wee bit confused by the question, but I do get the general jist of the question. I personaly take klonopin, a benzo with a much longer half life, nonetheless, the number one issue should be to taper at a slower rate if having troubles. I found that at times I would take one week off once I felt stable again from the prior taper so that I wouldn't stress my system out by non-stop tapering. This often then would take at times up to three weeks.
When it comes down to which hour to cut back on, it almost sounds like aquestion that only you can answer. When do you need the drug the most? What part of the day is the most stressfull for you? Obviously don't cut down the med when you need it the most.
I hope that this is of some help to you, and that my answer wasn't to far off the mark!!
Hello RE Express. I would go 1pm dose. Reasoning being you will have had the drug in your system the longest time and so will feel the cutting of said dose much less than the 5-30 one. You seem to be doing well, on the taper so if anything, continued success and best of wishes, pledge
