Hi guys I just registered. I'm helping my wife withdraw from daily dose of .5mg of Klonopin that she's been taking for 6 months.

Hoping to find some helpful resources here.

Hello Homework123 :hug:  Welcome to Benzobuddies


We always welcome members supporting loved ones, its great you joined for information for your wife, you will get plenty of support here.  Benzodiazepines should be tapered off slowly, reducing the daily dose by somewhere between 5% and 10% every 10 - 14 days is the rule of thumb.  You can go slower, whatever feels comfortable. The aim is to keep symptoms manageable.


I would like to suggest you read The Ashton Manual, It is a great resource for understanding the effect benzo’s have on our body.  It provides Tapering and withdrawal information and includes a list of common symptoms 


You will find some very valuable support and information on the forum.  Our members are happy to share their personal experiences with you and support you.. Please feel free to browse the boards and post questions to any of the dedicated threads.


I'll leave you a few links:
