What is the best way to taper off Klonopin?

@kittymama Hi, I also am tapering off Klondpin after 20 years. I started around October 2018. I took 1.5mg at night. I just no longer need it but was scared to go off. But decided to taper and to my surprise I am still not having any withdrawals that are hard to deal with. I am going down 10% of the pill every 2 to 3 weeks. That is very slow, but with good results. Just a little sleeplessness once in a while. But I am also taking melatonin 5mgs at night. I am currently at .125mg. I am very happy with my taper. The slower, the better my doctor said. And when I get to the last dose, he said take it every other night. It’s tedious to cut that last 1/2 pill but so worth going slow. Best wishes to you.

I just noticed you are fluffykitty and I am kittymama! I have just starting taking a magnesium supplement called CALM. The reviews were really encouraging! I will let you know if it helps me.

I am in the same ? Dilemma!
Taking Clonazapam many years at (too high a dose!)
I have stomach cramps while tapering.
Have a call in to prescriber.
My Gastroenterologist said the pain, cramping is not from IBS … it is from withdrawal from Clonazapam.
Strange, the prescribing doctor never said that was a possibility.
