How to taper off Klonopin?
Hello, and thanks for your question.
You ask about how to taper off Klonopin. I agree with your doctor's advice to decrease to twice a day taken concurrently with the Lyrica. You must taper off very slowly, given the relatively high dose (1mg 3 times a day) taken for a long time (5 years). Tapering too quickly can result in withdrawal and seizures. I would stay at 1mg twice a day for a month, and then decrease to 0.5mg twice a day for another month, and then stop.
