Here are some more detailed questions re your use of amino acids for Klonopin (I'm trying to withdraw from Valium) - hope you can help!

1. You mention taking divided doses for L-tryptophan* - 3000 mgs/day; DL-Phenylanine - 1500 mgs/day; L-Glutamine - 1000 mgs/day; L-theanine - 2000 mgs/day; GABA - 1500 mgs/day. Could you be more specific? Did you take these in divided doses three times daily or two times daily and, if so, did you just divide the total taken by the number of times (e.g. 3000 mg Tryptophan = 1,000 mg x 3 daily). Also, did you find specific times of the day more helpful than others for each divided dose?

2. How long was your Klonopin tapering schedule from beginning to cessation? I am currently taking 30 mg Valium (10 mg x 3) daily and the tapering guidelines I've read suggest that I should taper very slowly (minimum 6 months). However, I stopped taking Luvox (prescribed 5 years ago to help me lower and taper Valium but didn't work) about 8 months ago (though I had to increase my Valium from 10 mg to 30 mg daily for withdraal symptoms) and I still have occasional Luvox withdrawal problems though they've subsided considerably.

I really learned a lot from your post and I'm very happy that you found a successful method for tapering the Klonopin.
