Kaismama is 100% correct. Seizures are much more likely if you stop cold turkey, but can also occur when you taper off slowly. Be sure to talk to your doctor and ask for an anti-seizure medication BEFORE you start to go off this drug.

Klonopin (and other benzos) are some of the few drugs that risk fatality when you stop. Please be sure to take the precautions.
