I have been on .75mg Klonopin for 5 months.  I want to taper off.  Is there anyone who could help me do this myself?

Thank you

 

I also take 60 mg ziprasidone and 50 mg trazodone.

Hello. If you go the cut and hold route, I suggest you get a .001 gram scale from Amazon, for weighing accurate doses. Typical reduction is 5-10% every 10-14 days. Start on low end and see how tolerable symptoms are before increasing percentage of next cut, from the last dose. The scale is easy to use and further instructions can be given once you get it. Hope this helps.

Bennie, how did you get your sleep cycle back.

 

Thanks

 

When my dose got lower, number of hours of sleep sleep increased. When I got off K and in acute withdrawal I was wakened often with cortisol surges. That eventually went away. Now I sleep 6-8 hours, unless I have a bad night for reasons I rarely fret about. It happens, though annoying.

 

Please make a signature with doses and timeline, Ok?
