I too find that there is a delayed reaction to reducing clonazepam. I was feeling over sedated and had no anxiety anymore on a combo of 75mg of Luvox with only 3/16mg of clonazepam. I reduced it over a week to 1/8mg, and then finally 1/16. The next morning, I had the shakes, anxiety, and nausea. I also had significant depression. I immediately started ramping back up to 3/16mg. It's not the third day, and my mornings are starting to get better, I think. Clonazepam, for me, is unbelievably powerful.
