Hey nate...first...check your PM.

Second...are you wanting to taper off the Klonopin as well?  Honestly, my advice to you is one at a time...concentrate on getting off the Ativan first...okay?  I jknow you are having a rough time...and the Klonopin is most likely helping a bit with the Ativan w/d's.

And yes, Klonopin and Valium (diazepam) are the types of benzos indicated for more long-term use, as they stay in the system longer than the short-acting ones (Ativan, Xanax)...they actually build up a steady level in your system.  Also, they don't have the same "tolerance" issues that the others do.

One at a time, okay?  I know you are frustrated, and I can completely understand that.

Hang in there!
