Meems Klonopin taper thread

Feel free to read or create a new topic about benzodiazepine questions or detox. (*Note - Benzodiazepines are not opiates. They are Valium, Xanax, Klonopin, Ativan, and many more. Additionally, cessation of benzos without medical supervision can be very dangerous.)

Congrats on getting down to 0.5mg. I have been prescribed benzos, usually klonopin, since I was a teen but I always just ended up collecting them and rarely taking them. So I don't know what the withdrawal is like. But, 0.5 is a decently low dose right? I think that was the lowest dose I was ever scripted, aside from the 0.25 sublingual ones.
How bad was your neurontin kick? I was scripted a few bottles of gabapentin, but the withdrawl horror stories scared me away from ever taking any. I'm an anxious mofo in general, and the last thing I figured I needed was an uptick in general daily terror.
All you have is your fire
And the place you need to reach
Don't you ever tame your demons
But always keep them on a leash

Thanks, Eyedotz I will keep this going now just for you. :lol: I guess its good to know people are reading, but it would be oh so much more fun if they posted like you all.

Lots of crying going on in MeemsLand today. Do you have a thread? my DP/DR cog is so bad I have a hard time responding to people with anything of value right now. :puppy-dog: :banghead: :suicide2:

Hey, Cheeze yeah stay the hell away from the Neurontin 6 weeks of mental/physical hell. This is actually going better than that did so far. I don't think that will continue to be the case all the way down. I am thinking of trying a liquid titration in the near future.

Thanks so much for stopping in it means a lot. :D

How long do want to go between drops or are you just going to drop every day? Ok, just looked at your timeline above.

Have you done any grief counseling about your dad? Is your mom still alive?

What you are doing is scary and brave at the same time...when my dad died it was then I knew I had to start the back surgeries and then the methadone detox. All the emotions, especially fear, that had to be overcome....it was daunting but it gave me strength. Since you've been threw the sub detox....you can definitely get through this.

yeah last time I went off of sub and benzo's at about the same time. UGH this depression just sucks!!! I wish it was winter so I wouldn't feel bad about being outside.

I am going to look into the grief counselor when this is over, cuz I need it. No my mom died when I was 20. Held both their hands as they took their last breaths. :puppy-dog:

Meems....my dad was so excited to see me the day he died, he went to hug me and had a heart attack right then. I just sat there and watched him. I was scared to look in his eyes because I didn't want him to see my stunned face. It was pretty bad. I hope my mother goes in a more peaceful way.

The only way to go is the long way... it does seem like forever but you are doing this safely and patiently. You will get there. I'm sorry about your dad. That had to be incredibly hard to deal with tapering kpins.
Yay! Window! Please update when you can. I'm rooting for you! ~dotz

Hi Mimi.
I hope you're doing well. If you still check in here I'd like to ask you some questions. I am coming off sub and have been on 0.25mg klonopin daily for (maybe) 2 years or so. I'm planning to come off that too, just haven't decided the order in which to rid myself of these drugs yet. I can relate to so much of what you've posted. I lost my mother a few months ago.

How are you getting those precise doses you are dropping to? I find I cannot cut the pills evenly at all even with a pill cutter. They break and crumble and just will not cut nicely even along the 1/4 divisions the 2mg pills have.
Reducing from 32mg. Dropped from 26mg to 16mg 8th July 2017. August 1st 12mg.

Meems get severe depression dropping benzos. Over the years she's figured out that she is highly sensitive to damn near everything! Getting off sub is such an accomplishment for her. We should call her IRONMEEMS as her will is stronger than anyone I've met here.

I didn't realize dropping the benzos could result in depression too. I'm very worried about the depression that may follow getting off the crap that I'm on. I was pretty much debilitated by it for a few years just before I started on them.
