Ativan to Klonopin?
« on: August 21, 2022, 03:55:50 am »
Hey all,
Has anyone switched from Ativan to Klonopin for their taper? How did it go? Is the dosing the same? I know Klonopin has a longer half life, so Iím wondering if itíll help. I know Valium is often used, but it doesnít help my anxiety.

Is your doctor willing to prescribe Klonopin and is your reason for crossing because of interdose?  Klonopin users will typically dose less often than those who are on Ativan.
