@njp1013 I can understand your fear. I was scared at first and found it was not as uncomfortable as I had heard-those horror stories do not apply to everyone. I have not taken benzos for at least 2 years. I had been so numbed out I was missing a lot. Still deal with anxiety but still enjoying a world where colors are brighter, I can feel the good, bad and the ugly-not as bad as I had feared. Hope this helps you to be brave and strong. So oft we only hear the horror stories-not from this member.

Thank you @parus, every day is a leap of faith, but every day I stay on track is a victory and that feels good. I’ve read a study done on patients who have been on much higher doses than me for much longer and tapered at .25 mg per week with success, I’m taking it a little bit slower than that at 10 days per drop and checking in with my psych. klonopin helped me thru a very tough time; but I’m at the point now where the fear of having to eventually get off is the main cause of my anxiety, so that’s not good and why I want to get it done
