Klonopin Withdrawal - HELP

Hello all, I have GAD and take Remeron 30 mg at night. I also take 3 mg. of Klonopin a day which I am getting ready to wean off of. Can anyone give me any suggestions and success stories of how they did it or know the best way to do it. My Dr. wants me to cut out 1/8 of a 1 mg. pill for one week, wait a week to let my body adjust and then make another 1/8 cut, etc. By doing this, I figure it will take me 8 months to get down to 1 mg!! But I have been taking this dose since December and I guess he doesn't want me to relapse. Has anyone done this before and what can I expect to feel?? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks

Re: Klonopin Withdrawal - HELP

I think weaning off it over 4 weeks would be OK, the remeron should protect you from any problems

if the remeron is helping with your anxiety, then not much klonapin will be needed
