Under .125 Klonopin Club
« on: January 01, 2018, 06:19:52 am »
Hi everyone

Not sure how many people here qualify but even if there are just a few of us hopefully we can support each other to the finish line.

Iíd love to know what dose you are at and your taper method and maybe what plans you [...] for the finish. Jumping off or walking off at crumbs?

Iím doing a slow taper with longer holds using a gram scale. Just went down to .05 and change. At this low a dose I feel everything so Iím going slow and also want off. I am really learning patience.

Congratulations on getting so low itís a huge achievement.
I hear you about not looking forward to another cut I can relate.
Iím so low now and yet it still feels like an eternity before this will all be behind me.

Don't know if I qualify.  On teense of  klon, but I was switching to valium but never quite completed that.  So about 4 mg valium.

Think I don't quite make it....

Hello!  I qualify for this club. :) I've been tapering off .25mg since January 2017.  In May I started a dry-cut taper using a gram scale.  I'm currently at .088mg and it feels like it is taking forever.  My last few cuts [...] been 3% reductions because I was unable to handle much more.  My current strategy is to cut 1mg of the pill weight per week which will gradually increase the percentage of the cut.  This would take 4-5 more months to get to the point where I think I might walk off, which would be .03.  But I [...] pretty much honored my symptoms throughout this horrific journey, holding when necessary, so if my body tells me even this is too fast, it could take even longer.When do you plan to jump, [...]?

I am here too....trying to get off the last bit of Klonopin.  I [...] not had one day symptom free since I [...] been on Klonopin for 10 yrs.  I [...] been stuck now at 7 ml for several weeks now.  Physical symptoms [...] actually gotten worse. Which is why I am afraid of tapering
down any less.  Fortunately some of the mental symptoms are letting up.
I pray to be off of this stuff,

Wishing the best for you with your cut, [...].  How much do you plan to reduce your dosage?

The million $$$ question, how much to reduce my dosage.   :laugh:   I think I am going to reduce it only .005mg.  That would make me need like 24 cuts to get to the end.  I need little ones at this point.  I already feel so fragile and I've been holding for over four months now.
