how do i discontinue benzo while starting ssri?

Posted by CaffeinePoet on October 6, 2012, at 13:13:33

I'm re-starting Effexor at the low dose of 12.5 mgs x 2, bumping up to 37.5 or 50 total (whatever works).

But I also have an old clonazepam prescription from a different doctor. I have been taking an average of .50 clonazepam daily for 5 weeks.

I may call the nurse to ask about this. But question -- if you have been given instructions about how to stop a benzo, at what point was it considered ok to do so after starting an ssri? I don't want to wait very long as I find being on two psych meds to cause problems with intelligence/thinking.
