Sat, Mar 2 4:15pm · Klonopin taper in Depression & Anxiety

Some psychiatrists will immediately dismiss anything that mentions CBD. They are possibly worried about their license and will state the party line that there are no studies yet on it. They may be worried that prescribing it could impact their license. Other doctors/psychiatrists are more open to it and will say that although they can't prescribe it they are open to it. There are a few MD's and nurse practitioners who do have familiarity with using CBC in their practice. Suggest that you google and try to find one of those and/or ask marijuana dispensary if they know of medical marijuana doctors None of the health insurances will pay for it however. There have been a very few studies however more studies are being done now. I also wonder how many long term studies have been on the use of clonazepam and chronic anxiety and the long term effects of that psychatric drug on the body.

He took clonazepam for chronic anxiety, irritability . He has told me he feels calmer when he takes the CBD. 20:1 ratio. I recommend finding a reliable dispensary and.or MD or nurse who is familiar with CBD in reducing anxiety and irritability. The tapering went very slow He changed brands several times because of availability issues of the CBD. tincture

I weaned my son off of Clonazapam and it took about 4 months but did this in conjunction with giving him 20:1 CBD oil. He actually was less anxious and irritable with the CBD than on just Clonazapam. He was initially taking 1 mg Clonazapam in am and .5 mg in pm. I reduced it very gradually by cutting the pills with a pill cutter when needed. Example took .75mg in am and .5 mg in pm. Then .75mg in am and .25mg in pm, then .5mg in am and .25mg in pm. He took CBD tincture 2-3 times/day . He had been on Clonazapam for years prior to weaning him off slowly and introducing CBD. .

Hi

I weaned my son off clonazepam successfully very slowly using CBD as a substitute. He was taking clonazepam twice a day. I first lowered the dose in the evening very slightly. After a few weeks then lowered the mg of the morning . He was taking CBD every 4-6 hours. Gradually then went to removing the evening dose and then finally the am dose. I did this with the direction of his psychiatrist although she was not that knowledgeable about CBD. It took a few months to take him off clonazepam. Also increased the CBD slightly as well when I lowered the clonazepam dosage. I had heard that CBD could interact potentially with the medication but not that significant if you go very slowly in tapering.

For anxiety, I started giving my son 20/1 CBD to THC. This means it has very very small amount of THC and was not psychoactive meaning he did not get high on that type of CBD. I gave him initially .2ml but you really should check with the dispensary consultant to discuss dose or a doctor that deals with CBD. CBD milligrams/ml is what you should know as many different brands have different concentrations. Some will say start with a 1/4 dropperful but it really depends on the brand, what you are using it for so that is why you should discuss it with a consultant at the dispensary.

sometimes CBD can be activating if the dosage is not correct and you take it prior to sleep. I would check with a competent knowledgeable dispensary who can give you advice on what dose and when to help with anxiety and sleep.

Regarding administration of CBD under the tongue/sublingually- I have heard different opinions on this . Some say that it will provide for faster absorption similar when someone takes Nitroglycerin under the tongue. Others have said it doesn't matter. I tell my son with autism to hold it for 10 seconds. I do not see any downside to holding it under the tongue Regarding cost of CBD, some CBD dispensaries have a program for low income, need to ask

While hemp-derived CBD is legal in all 50 states, 'marijuana'-derived CBD is not legal federally. … It classifies “marijuana” as any plant of the cannabis family that contains greater than 0.3% THC. Glad your doctor has a sense of humor and is tolerant.
