Hi all, I saw my psych yesterday and he wants me to continue to hold at .5 mg/day. Not really sure how I feel about that but I promised myself I would follow his advice. he said sometime in the next two months try another cut but there is no rush and that it’s not a race or a challenge. He also said at that low of a dose the klonopin isn’t really doing much for me and that it’s mostly placebo. so anyway that’s where it stands, I’ll probably give .25 mg a try before the end of March. it seems like the plan is cut, hold, adjust, recover and when I feel strong enough repeat. So I guess I’m ok with that.

@njp1013 – This is the best way to go about the taper! Good Job! Stick with it and I'm sure you will be happy with the results!

nj,
How are you doing?
I bet you are adjusting well to the 2 halves. I have to admit that I took an extra 1/2 on one or two occasions. Now strictly 2 halves a day. Some days I only take one half!.. and find the second half in my pill case.
A pill case is a great tool… available in some version from pharmacies. I have a small case which has a plastic container for each day of the week.
Each day is divided into
Morning
Noon
Evening
Bed

They may also be available on line.

This titration down made me realize that I looked for medication when I was anxious.
I am looking forward to seeing a new doctor who treats anxiety. He is very thorough and contacted the doctor who prescribed Clonazepam. 👏🏼
Keep us posted.
You have a plan!! Hooray 🙏
