Sat, Mar 21 10:02am · Starting Klonopin Taper, Scared of the Horror Stories in Depression & Anxiety

Also I really miss the days where my klonopin taper was my #1 concern 🙄

Hi helen actually I’ve only been on one half now for about ten days but we will see might go back to two halves. This lockdown is rough stuff but I’m hanging in there. Good to hear that you are doing well!

Effexor 225 mg/day, buspar 20 mg/day and klonopin .25 mg/day

Yes it is a challenging time for sure. I’ve made use of every tool I have learned many times in the last week. I’m glad I already have medication and therapy for support.

Anxiety level has definitely been up this week but I think that has much more to do with all going on in the world than the reduction in meds. It’s been manageable though.

I have discontinued gabapentin twice took about a week each time. No emotional withdrawal symptoms but some pretty wild muscle stiffness and aches for a few days. Overall not hard to get off.

Just FYI to update I’m at .25 mg (about 10 days now, did a week at .375 before that) and holding until the world returns to somewhat normal. Hope everybody is staying healthy physically and mentally.

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.
