"Successful" is a relative term. After being on Klonopin for 7 years @ 2+ mg/day, and failing a couple of taper-off attempts, I went cold turkey. I really didn't know what to expect, and it was worse than I might have guessed. The "rebound anxiety" was really bad, and I didn't sleep at all for a few days, but I didn't feel as if I was in medical danger. The worst of the symptoms began to subside after about a week. The total readjustment took several more months. Even though it sucked, I was glad to be done with medications, once and for all. While white-knuckled cold turkey may not be recommended, it's faster than anything else. Oh, and I had my wonderful wife to keep an eye on me while I went through it.
