... too 5mg a day. I am scared today is day 2. Am I strong enough to do this? I was prescribed 3mg of xanax and been taking 2mg of klonopin from a friend that's why I have had 5 mg of benzos in my body. I told my dr the truth they now have me on just 3mg of klonopin .I need some reassurance this is possible. Its the scariest thing I have been through.
