ohhhh boy I have heard it used for narcotic wd but this is the first I have heard with benzos normally they use Valium with most benzos .Look in my journals there are some tapers for klonopin. I dont know if they will help but check it out it might be helpful,

I'm on suboxone as well 8/2mg x 3 a day. I was addictded to opiates and benzos before i started the program. I went thru detox and started outpatient 18mos ago. I was on subs 24mg a day and valium 45mg a day. Dr. did a slow detox with the valium and 2 days ago i went from 16mg of valium (daily) to 60mg of phenobarbital (a day).. i was expecting to feel pretty much ok. NOT the case! I am hurting BAD... Has anyone had a similar experience?? or have any comments about the subject? thanks..
