Hi Kenny,
I just went through what you are about to. I had been taking clonazepam(1-2mg) for most of the last 10 years. It has been a good augmenter of Nardil for my social anxiety disorder. But the memory dysfunction was really starting to bother me. I spent about 2.5 months tapering down from 2mg. It was all pretty easy down to .5mg, then things started getting a little bit dicey. I just kept cutting my 2mg tablets into smaller and smaller pieces. I really should have gotten the .5mg tablets after I got down to that dosage. Anyway after being on .25mg for a couple of weeks, I went to .25 every other day for a week and then just quit. I've been off of clonazepam for a little over a week now and am still having some rebound anxiety and insomnia. I think I will try to tough it out though. I am really hoping to recover some of my former mental abilities.
Good Luck,
Jedi

PS An option that some people use is to switch to a less potent benzo with still a long half-life, such as diazepam(Valium). Most equivalence charts show that clonazepam is 20 times more potent than diazepam. This would let you cut down at an even slower rate.
