Hi Helloman :hug:


Welcome to Benzobuddies, are you looking to taper off the Clonazapam.  These meds are only meant for short term use 2/3 weeks, that’s all it takes for the body to become dependent.  Are you familiar with the  Ashton Manual , it is an excellent resource for information about these medications and gives a lot of information about withdrawal/tapering. 


A slow taper can help minimize withdrawal effects.  It is generally recommended to taper no more than 5-10% every 10-14 days.  This is a guideline and it is ok to adjust this schedule for  your own comfort.


Here are some helpful links:

You will receive much support and encouragement from our caring members.  Please feel free to ask questions.
