Hi, I've been tapering off of Klonopin since the beginning of July. I thought I would join to be of some hope to those who are tapering, because tapering hasn't been horrible for me, as I've taken it slow. Granted, I haven't completed the tapering process, but I've tapered down from 2mg to .75mg (soon to be .5) since I started in July.

Hello, gailthesnail :) - welcome to BenzoBuddies, and congratulations on your productive tapering from Klonopin!  :thumbsup:


I'm so glad you decided to join the forum - you'll find plenty of information and support here. Our members have gone through all aspects of benzodiazepine use and withdrawal, so you'll be able to connect with others who understand what you're going through and can tell you what has worked for them. They'll also be very glad to hear from you, since your taper is going smoothly.


Please feel free to post to any of the specialized boards, which can all be accessed from the BenzoBuddies Community Forum homepage. Based on the information provided in your introduction, the following links may be a good starting place for you.


  General Taper Plans


  Withdrawal Support During Your Taper


When you have a chance, we highly recommend that you take a look at The Ashton Manual, which is an authoritative source on what to expect during withdrawal and recovery, authored by Dr. C. Heather Ashton, who is an expert in the field. It provides a great deal of information that can be very reassuring during any stage of this process, including a list of common symptoms with helpful explanations on the reasons for their existence.


For those who are currently tapering, we suggest reducing no faster than 5-10% every 10-14 days, and some taper even slower than that. One exception: very short-term users of a few weeks or less may be able to taper faster than that. 


Please take the time to Create a Signature. This will allow members to see where you are in the process, so that they can better support you.


Again, welcome!
