I've heard of pdocs giving patients Valium to wean off of Klonopin, but I've never heard of giving Klonopin to wean off of Xanax. Since I've taken both meds, when you've tried Klonopin and have successfully withdrawn from it, then please come back and tell me about your experience. Until then, I've nothing further to say on this subject.
