> You might try switching to Tranxene (clorazepate), a very long-acting benzo. Tapering off Tranxene would likely be easier. Another strategy that has sometimes helped people get off of benzos is to take an anticonvulsant like Neurontin, Depakote, or Tegretol.

Elizabeth/Jodsteroo,

I have noticed that I can *swap* roughly .5mg of Klonopin with 125mg of Depakote or 100mg of Neurontin. It takes a few days... I am now down to .5mg (two half-tabs)of Klonopin daily, sleeping plenty/easily. I wonder also if Gabitril (at low doses-for those who can tolerate it) would also work??
