What medications do u recommend for clonazepam withdrawal?..Im taking 1mg per day, recently down to .75 mg ..Thx

A ways to go, yet: You have a slow and gradual way to go. Your physician, who knows you and your condition best, is the best one to develop a taper schedule with you. Compounding pharmacies may be needed to prepare certain dosing increments. Klonopin is quite potent, and even small reductions can result in symptoms. Hopefully your basic anxiety is under good control with non-pharmaceutical methods. Good luck! ...Read more

How fast can I stop taking 1mg of clonazepam if I have been taking it for 1year for anxiety?

How fast can I stop taking 1mg of clonazepam if I have been taking it for 1year for anxiety?

Taper: I would taper it over a couple of weeks. Take 3/4 for 5 days, 1/2 for 5 days, 1/4 for 5 days and then stop. That will prevent any physical withdrawal. Of more concern would be recurrence of the underlying anxiety. Many antidepressants work well for anxiety (e.g. Paxil, mirtazepine, and effexor). ...Read more

What is the usual recovery time from using benzos on a daily basis for 6 months (1mg clonazepam)?

What is the usual recovery time from using benzos on a daily basis for 6 months (1mg clonazepam)?

Depends: This depends on several factors. Most important is the reason that the clonazepam was taken in the first place, completely resolved. It is possible that other types of medication and or psychotherapy may have been successfully utilized and the problems are resolved. In this case gradually tapering the clonazpam perhaps to 1/2 mg/day and then even to 1/4 mg over a few weeks would do the trick. ...Read more

Been prescribed enzymes and my 1mg clonazepam isn't working so good anymore.Do enzymes break it down faster or why am i more anxious?Coincidence?

Been prescribed enzymes and my 1mg clonazepam isn't working so good anymore.Do enzymes break it down faster or why am i more anxious?Coincidence?

U maybe right.: The enzymes are metabolizing or hastening the digestion of clonazepam. Consider to stop taking the enzymes or take the two meds 6-8 hours apart. Hope u feel better! http://psychcentral.Com/blog/archives/2011/01/23/11-tips-to-help-manage-anxiety/. ...Read more

I'm on Clonazepam 1mg and it makes me feel tired throughout the day. I do not take it every day. Would a shorter lasting benzo be a good option?

I'm on Clonazepam 1mg and it makes me feel tired throughout the day. I do not take it every day. Would a shorter lasting benzo be a good option?

Not necessarily: Clonazepam has more than it's fair share of sedating side effects. Valium has less even though it is even longer acting. Mos of the shorter acting agents are also less sedating but if you are taking the pills regularly and not as needed, you may not want to sacrifice stability ...Read more

I don't have any liver problems. I have been taking 1mg clonazepam for 1 month. Can this medicine cause lover damage? I read it can elevate enzymes.

I don't have any liver problems. I have been taking 1mg clonazepam for 1 month. Can this medicine cause lover damage? I read it can elevate enzymes.

Extremely rare.: But this assumes you are not dirnking excessively and not taking other medicines that are more prone to cause liver problems. Presumably this medicine has been helpful to you. Just insure that you are following up with the prescribing doctor. ...Read more
