I'd ask about a switch to an equivalent dose of Valium. I think at your current dose, that'd be 20-30mgs/day, which is well within the old school dosing recommendations (usually, up to 40mgs/day).

Valium has a long half life. It also has more pronounced muscle relaxant properties than Klonopin. It -is- more sedating, which isn't always a bad thing. Old school dosing called for 3 doses per day, with the 3rd dose having a higher dosage, to help with sleep.

Should you decide to discontinue treatment after switching to Valium, there's all kinds of pill sizes available, and I think there's a liquid, too.

Hope this helps.
