When should I continue to taper?


[...]

Recommended Posts

After holding at 1mg Klonopin for 10 weeks I still feel bad, should I wait until I feel better to continue the taper or should I go ahead and start slowly?. The plan is doing the rest with milk titration at a rate of 0.01mg a day.

I am sure we are all different but if I hold longer than 3 weeks I get worse not better, I have tried a couple of 4 week holds with the same results.

I think your titration plan sounds good. :smitten:

You might be going into intolerance so holding longer might not help you. Just keep tapering slowly. I say if symptoms don't land you in the hospital and you are getting through each day, then you are strong enough to keep tapering.

My anxiety indoors is manageable, but I can't go outside much because of the agoraphobia :(. I had hoped that it would have gotten better during the last 10 weeks, but it hasn't.

For me 2 weeks is the max I can hold. I usually taper small cuts every 7 days and ok with it, just listen to your body we are all different

What happens to you after 2 weeks?

My experience is that I don't get much better but stay in a kind of up and down state where I either feel bad or a bit worse but never good. 4 weeks is the max I have held and I never got stable.

  • 4 weeks later...

Do I have to get to 0mg before things get better?, I'm now at 0.75mg and the anxiety is so bad I can't leave my apartment.

Don't know if I should hold for a bit now or continue tapering?, the last time I held for 10 weeks without getting better :(.

 

I'm also afraid to push myself too much, it's backfired a lot :(.

when I hit 0.25mg i stopped feeling good completely. but taper was doable. not many really stabilize fully

2 weeks hold was max. for me.
