Klono taper...wish me luck!

After a year and a half of taking 1.5-2.0 mg Klonopin daily (a medication I have since become desensitized to), I finally feel stable (stable...not cured by any means) enough to start tapering off. No I'm not going to switch over to valium because that seems like a real pain in the ass and my psych thinks its probably worth a shot trying the simple route first and coming down by 0.125 mg every two weeks.

Of course I've heard of the benzo horror stories and now it's my turn to find if I'm to be victimized next.

Fingers crossed.

May the Force be with you, Paolo.

I will be very interested in seeing how it goes for you. I have been off of lexapro for about a month now and plan on starting decreasing my klono in another month or so.

Fingers definitely crossed for you.

Thanks for coming around to let us know how it's going for you. I hope the gradual decrease keeps being just a tad aggravating. I know it's going to take a while.

Sending the most positive of thoughts to you.
