Klonopin User of 6 Months - Struggling to Get Off


Recommended Posts



I've been on 0.5mg of Klonopin every night for around 6 months. I'm really struggling to get off, and hoping I can get some help from this community - and reciprocate when I can.


I started taking K for a chronic illness, which has only made it worse. Doctor tried to wean me off over a 4 week period, went through hell within days.

Hello reg123 :hug:  Welcome to BenzoBuddies! 


We are glad you joined, you will get plenty of support here.  I am sorry sorry about your health issues. You are making a great decision in tapering off benzodiazepines.  The best way to get off these drugs is to taper off slowly.  The suggested taper rate is 5/10% every 10/14 days, some of us taper slower than this, the rate can be adjusted to meet your needs.  You can learn more about tapering on our Taper Plans Board. 


I suggest you check out the Ashton Manual, you will find It is a valuable resource for learning about benzos and the effect these drugs have on our body.  As well as taper/withdrawal information, it lists  possible withdrawal symptoms symptoms 


I'll leave you a few links:
