in reply tto @johnhans " I am in the process of getting off klonopin, I've only been on for 5 months, .5 tablet , but was so panicked after getting a divorce and being on my own, I needed klonopin. Had been taking lexapro for a few years after trying many different antidpressants.
My doctor hasn't prescribed anything else with it, just upping my lexapro at night.
Did you use anythng to help calm your nerves?

Thank you

Welcome @barbra. It sounds like you are tapering off Klonopin under the guidance of your doctor. Having not taken it for long should work in your favor. You may wish to connect with others like @donnacarp @cduncan123 @stanof53 and others in this discussion:

Have you considered non-medicine approaches to calm your nerves and give you support as you taper, such as using a meditation app like CALM or yoga?
