My son took Clonopin daily prior to taking CBD. . I used CBD to wean him off clonopin and went very slowly lowering the dose of Clonopin as I very slowly increased the CBD oil . He suffered no ill side effects from using both to my knowledge. He used to take 1 mg of Clonopin in am and 0.5 in PM . When I started lowering the dose of Clonopin he initially took 0.5mg of Clonopin in am and 0.5 mg in PM . I initially gave him small amount of CBD oil every 4-6 hours. I would check with the prescribing doctor for the Clonopin and see what they think about it. FYI you may need to get a second opinion because not all MD's are familiar with CBD I also had a pill cutter and was even cutting the .5 mg Clonopin in half to get 0.25mg As I recall I made a change in the dosage about every 2 weeks. It took months but he was successfully weaned off the clonopin. You could of course also try just reducing the clonopin slowly and give no CBD until you are completely off of it. I again would check with the prescribing MD realizing that some MD's are firmly opposed to using any CBD. . I gave him some CBD while withdrawing the clonopin to prevent an increase in anxiety. Everyone can be different in how they respond also. Best to check with a couple MD's who are knowledgeable. My son's psychiatrist was not knowledgeable about dosing with CBD but was knowledgeable about how to wean off a psychiatric med. With SSRI's you need to go very slow as well to avoid untoward side effects.
