No: If you are accurate about it being only once, the next dose being zero is the only taper possible and it will be fine. If not, not. Best!

Probably not: Its always best to taper Klonopin (clonazepam). Once you reach 0.5mg/day, you can safely stop it.

Klonopin (clonazepam) taper: Hi ken, if the taper becomes too uncomfortable usually slowing the pace is helpful. Good luck.
