I am currently using klonopin to taper off of a high dose of Ambien.  I am down to taking .25 in the am, .125 in the afternoon and .5 at bedtime.  I am having a difficult time with each cut... Unfortunately this is my third time putting myself through this process.  You think I would have learned that any "Z" drug and I do not get along.  It's the depression that has me this time - along with occasional anxiety attacks, and muscle aches.  I am tapering .125 every 14 days.  I feel like I will never get free and feel like myself again.

Hi Tooneygirl :hug: Welcome to Benzobuddies


Well done on your taper so far, withdrawal can be tough but you are going to be okay, you will get there.  You will receive plenty of support here,from people who know what you’re going through. The rule of thumb is tapering  between  5-10% every 10-14 days. 


We have a great community here of knowledgeable and friendly people who understand this process.  They will be willing to share their experience with you.  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. 


Here are some helpful links:

If you would be so kind as to add a signature (history of meds/doses etc) it will help members give you relevant advice this link will show you how to”Create a signature”
