Reducing/stopping Klonopin while on Nardil

Posted by MightyKondrian on November 16, 2017, at 8:06:01

Hey fellow babblers!

I've been taking clonazepam for over 12yrs. During that time I was 1st taking Nardil (phenelzine) then Marplan (isocarboxazid) then back to Nardil a year ago. Many other meds have been used during this time.
One thing I have always been aware of is the Klonopin can cause a depressed mood.
Now, during the 1st 3yrs I was under the care of Prof. David Nutt. One time when I was on 3mg Klonopin with 90mg Nardil I asked to come off Klonopin he said there was no need to titrate off Klonopin, just stop it because, quote "just stop the clonazepam as you are on phenelzine".

I mean this came from 'The Horses Mouth'!
Who was I to argue?
So Thats what I did. Anxiety worsened (expected) but I followed what he said. 2 months later NO convulsion, tremors or fits. Still I went back on it for anxiety.

Now I want out again. I'm on 120mg Nardil, I've halved my 4mg Klonopin the last 3 days. And just today I feel great! I haven't had any problems so far.

10 days time I plan to go half again, 1mg. Then, in the same fashion down to 0.5mg for 10 days then stop.

I'm also thinking that since starting Nardil almost a year ago, I might start feel it properly plus my other meds too.
(been on clonidine, was crap and depressing).
I take 450mg of bupropion too so will reduce that back down from 450mg to 300mg to help prevent fits.

I haven't finished but cant think of what to add right now lol. what do others think? And please ask questions.
