> I've been on Xanax XR (0.5 mg) for a couple of months. A few days ago I skipped it 2 days in a row, trying to convince myself that i didn't need it.

If you stick with a lower dose of klonopin, you should be OK. I never had any problems with withdrawal when I was on it on a routine basis. I take .5-1mg as needed now adays. To tell you the truth, some AD's are worst to withdrawal from than klonopin IMOP.
