> hi. clearly, you should do what works for you. I just...--hated-- my klonopin taper. I mean, it was hell on earth.
> maybe since you're comfortable at 2mgs/klonopin, see about switching over to valium and maybe do a slow(er) taper off that? that's how some experts recommend doing benzodiazepine tapers. apparently, valium and Librium = easier, more comfortable tapers.
I've had 2 alcohol detox's using Librium each time. It is indeed lighter. Unfortunately it has a very short therapeutic range and they both wear off too quickly (for me). Valium is said to have a half life similar too clonazepam but maybe. Well any Benzo seems to help SA but if its long term you need the longer halflife types. Fox example Idealy I'd like to try Klonopin with Xanax prn.
one way to kick a benzo maybe this: lets say ur on 3mg/day. Drop to 2mg. When (or if) anxiety returns go back up to 2.5
Then, after the anxiety subsides drop to 1.5mg.
If anxiety increases again go back up to 2mg. And on, and on, ...
So every time you increase again you are still decreasing overall. Take the time I need.

BTW, if you look at my signature, which meds will I have to stop during the detox? I'd like to keep aririprazole. Add Haloperidol during by hospital stay/home detox. I dont like it much but its a great calmer at least too start with.

Phenelzine 120mg, Amitriptyline 100mg, Clonazepam 3mg, Bupropion 450mg, Aripiprazole 10mg, Acamprosate 2g + nootropics
