How to Taper off Klonopin, Benzodiazepines




Having fought with the dependence on Klonopin for decades and after trying detox methods through rehabs that were unsuccessful due to the rapid rate most rehabs detox you, I researched and found a successful tapering method used widely in the United Kingdom.

At the end of this post is a recommended table to successfully and as painless a method to taper off Klonopin and other benzodiazepines. Slow is the operative word when it comes to benzo’s

First my story and why I started taking Klonopin to begin with. If I knew than what I know now, I may not have ever started them. Long term use results in a very difficult withdrawal period.

That said here’s my story

The Panic attacks started at about age 20, and it just kept getting worse. It affected my social life, my work, school, it was pervasive in my entire life and my entire being. Anxiety is a powerful disorder, it can control your life.

There are many ways besides medication to control or even totally eradicate it. However during the 1980;s medication was the number one anecdote utilized by many doctors.

Benzodiazepines, specifically, Xanax, Klonopin, and Ativan were the preferred drugs of choice prescribed by most psychiatrists.

I remember the Doctor writing me a script for Serax, (Oxepam) an old benzodiazepine that’s hardly used anymore. It has been replaced by either Xanax or Klonopin.

Nevertheless, I held on to that script for almost two months because I understood it was addictive. I finally, after trying numerous other non-addictive meds of which none helped gave in and filled the script.

I remember this like it was yesterday and it was decades ago. Thirty minutes after taking the pill, I was like a new man. Panic attacks were gone, anxiety was gone. I had energy, I could think, my mind stopped racing. I was cured. So I thought.

How I did it:

Fifteen years later when it came time to get off the medication, I couldn’t. I tried several times and failed. Then I found a method to successfully withdraw from the medication. I thought I would share it. I hope it helps

It is as follows :

Schedule 1. Withdrawal from high dose (6mg) alprazolam (Xanax
daily with diazepam (Valium) substitution. (6mg alprazolam
is approximately equivalent to 120mg diazepam)

  1. There is no actual withdrawal (only diazepam substitution) in Stages 1-4, so these could be undertaken at weekly intervals (but you could take 2 weeks for each stage if preferred).
  2. The evening dose of diazepam could be taken at bed-time, rather than with the alprazolam if that is usually taken earlier. (Do not take any other sleeping tablet).
  3. Some dosage reduction occurs in later stages of the diazepam switchover (Stages 5-11), so these stages could be undertaken at two week intervals. Even at reducing doses, the diazepam should cover withdrawal from alprazolam, because by this time it has had time to work through the body and will be acting smoothly both day and night. The aim is to obtain a dose of diazepam which avoids withdrawal symptoms but is not so great as to make you sleepy.
  4. At Stage 12 it would be sensible to move to twice daily dosage. Diazepam is long-acting and there is no need to take it more than twice a day. There is no reduction in dosage while you make this change (Stages 11 and 12).

Schedule 2. Simple withdrawal from diazepam (Valium) 40mg daily
(follow this schedule to complete Schedule 1)

  1. You could probably manage Stages 1-5 (or even Stages 1-10) in weekly intervals (but take 2 weeks between stages if you prefer).
  2. The later stages are probably better taken in 2 week intervals.
  3. When you get down to a dose of 5mg daily, you could begin to decrease in 0.5mg doses, but most people manage with 1mg reductions.
  4. You will need to utilise a mixture of 10mg, 5mg, and 2mg diazepam tablets to obtain the required dosages. Halve the (scored) 2mg tablet to obtain 1mg doses.
  5. If your starting dose is 20mg diazepam daily, you could begin at Stage 10, but in this case you could reduce by 1mg every 2 weeks.
  6. If starting from Schedule 1 (alprazolam 6mg daily) continue your reduction using this schedule.

Schedule 3. Withdrawal from lorazepam (Ativan) 6mg daily
with diazepam (Valium) substitution. (6mg lorazepam is
approximately equivalent to 60mg diazepam)

  4. Day-time doses of diazepam are gradually phased out (Stages 17-25); in succeeding stages you only need to phase out the night-time dose by 1mg every week or two.
  5. A mixture of 10mg, 5mg and 2mg diazepam tablets will be needed to obtain the required doses. Halve the (scored) 2mg tablets to obtain 1mg doses.

Schedule 4. Withdrawal from nitrazepam (Mogadon) 10mg at
night with diazepam (Valium) substitution. (Nitrazepam
is approximately the same strength as diazepam)

substitution of diazepam (Valium). (0.5mg clonazepam
