Klonopin (clonazepam): Klonopin (clonazepam) is easier to taper in the long run than Lorazepam because it has a far longer half-life and is therefore much more forgiving in a tapering situation then a short acting drug with a short half-life like lorazepam.

Klonopin (clonazepam): Because Klonopin (clonazepam) has a longer half-life, it is easier to taper.
