Although clonazepam is by far the LEAST addictive of the benzodiazepines, no one taking 2mg a day should try to quit without tapering. Once you are stable at .25 mg a day, stopping it altogether should not cause you much discomfort unless you just happen to be especially sensitive. But don't go from 2mg/day to zero.

If you are experiencing these symptoms WHILE TAKING 2mg a day, it is more likely that the primary disease is somehow interfering with the action of the clonazepam, either by blocking its absorption (vomiting or diarrhea) or by interfering with its metabolism.

Are you trying to quit? If so, why? Are your symptoms relieved by taking it? If you're trying to quit, are you tapering your dosage? It can take some people weeks or even months to taper off of some drugs. Don't rush it!

And by all means, get your symptoms checked out by your doctor. It may have nothing to do with clonazepam dosage.

Best wishes,

Mark H.
