It sounds like you are dry-cutting/shaving/pill-splitting and weighing your dose(s).  Is this correct?

Oh dear.  Iím confused.

How do you know you are taking .113g of clonazepam if you have switched to using liquid?

Did you make your liquid using a piece of a tablet that weighed .113g and then drink the entire amount?

To answer your question, we need to know:

(1) How much your full/uncut tablet weighs (or even better, the average weight of 10 of your tablets)

(2) The strength of the tablets you are using (i.e. how much clonazepam each tablet contains).  Common strengths are 0.5mg, 1mg, or 2mg.

(3) How exactly you are preparing your homemade liquid (if you did not use a piece of your tablet).

How many full/uncut tablets did you use? 

Did you add milk?  How many mLs (milliliters)?

Did you add 40% vodka or PG? How many mLs? After your tablet(s) disintegrated, how much water did you add?

(4) Have you been measuring and discarding a portion of your liquid each day?  If so, how much?

Or

Have you been measuring and drinking a portion of your liquid each day?  If so, how much?

Well my bf did it. Henis very grouchy about this soni dont want to ask hin.
My 1 mg k is 172 grams
I got down to .133 grams. By breaking pieced off i know dumb
He took. .133 ◊ 5 = .665 grams
So he measured pills to equal. 665
He broke the milk solurion into 5 days.
I have been taking the soltion so far 3 days

So i am confused. I cant deal with him. He freaks out and yells.
Ugh.

My original plan was to titrate 3 % a month of 1mg k and see how it goes. I am really destabilized.

So now i am doing this .133 grams a day. I am feeling it pretty bafb
But im ok. So i know i need to hold.

So if i wanted to titrate of .133 at 3 % with milk a month. How would i do that. Would the calculation change each month. I am so nervous. I cant think to well. This stuff im not good at.

I probobly confused you. I really messed up. So I hope there is a plan i can do. Thank you so much for your help. Im pretty much slone in this.  :-[

Just re-reading your original post ....

When you were dry-cutting, were you taking 133 or 0.133?

FYI I sent a PM last night about your request to the member who usually helps with titration plans.

Edit: typo, wording

Thank you Liberatas!

I really appreciate your help. I just cant wrap my mind around this whole thing. My original post was wrong. The dose is .133.  Not 113. Ugh. It is hard to do these things when your brain cant think. Lol Thank you!

Just so I'm clear, your are starting with a tablet that weighs .172g, and are removiing material to get it down to .133g weight?

You want to do a daily taper at a rate of 3%/mo?

And what is the dose designation of your tablet (.5mg. 1mg, etc...)?
