Okay so I've been taking a very low dose of klonopin (.25mg a day) for a few months now. Maybe 3-3.5 months at the most. By personal choice and the fact that I'm also about to lose my health insurance (I have Medicaid right now but no longer qualify, I'll be talking to a social worker at my doc office to see if I can qualify for help with health insurance) it's time to get off the klonopin. Well that and because you obviously shouldn't be on benzos daily for a long time. ANYWAYS lol I spoke with my doc about a tapering plan - I know I'm on a super tiny dose but I want to be as safe as possible and make sure there's little to no withdrawal effects - and she didn't really provide a clear cut one. So I spoke with my friend that works in the pharmacy and he also spoke with the head pharmacist that's been there for like 20 years and she said this
"if she wants to go fast, just have her take 1/2 tab daily for 2 weeks, then stop. If she wants to go slow, 1/2 tab daily for 2 weeks, then 1/4 daily for 2 weeks, then stop. She's not taking that high of a dose to worry about withdrawals"
Does this sound like a good tapering plan? I would think that I'd have to in the end take them like every day then every other day then every three days etc
