Hello ..I was misdiagnosed, many years ago, then poly drugged, which included benzodiazepines.  I was cold turkeyed in March, 2016, from not one, but two benzodiazepines, that I'd been prescribed for close to 10 years (I didn't know that was bad, and this was a doctor that really did not know me) ..after almost 5 months, I am now back on 2 mg. of Clonazepam (Klonopin), at bed time ..and, having made my doctor aware of the "Ashton Manual," we will start tapering, at some point.  I am here for information ..thanks

Hi  :) Welcome to BenzoBuddies!


I am glad you found us today.The recommended reduction rate is 5 to 10 percent every two weeks. A slow gradual taper is the best way to minimize symptoms.



You might like to check out The Ashton Manual it is an authoritative source on what to expect in withdrawal and recovery.  Dr. Ashton is an expert in the field. 


Please feel free to post to any of the dedicated boards, we have a wonderful community of people here, who will give sound advice. Members have been through all aspects of benzodiazepine use and withdrawal and are more than willing to share their experiences.
