I have been on Klonopin since Jan 01 and have tried to get off several times. I have cut back from 2 mg a day to .25 a day and then last Wed. stopped totally - Did great until the weekend - was grumpy - today I have had a constant Panic attack since I woke up.........HELP
I would go back on the .25 mgs and stabilize. Then I would cut 1/2 of that and stay there for a month or longer. Then try to go off. If that is too much you can cut the 1/4 pill into another half and stay there a month or longer. My Dr. even says to hold 2 months between cuts if you need to. The slower the better.
