Do you have any Klonopin left, if you do I'd sure use it to make the cross.

It looks like you're going to mix it a little bit on days 1-7.

From what I read it can take up to a month for the Valium to reach full potency and you're going to discontinue your Klonopin in 7 days, this could leave you without full coverage.  I hope you'll keep us posted on your progress this will be a learning experience for all of us.

Mixing is the whole point of a slow crossover, its to make the transition back to Valium less painful.

If you have enough Klonopin, I'd take more time to give the Valium a chance to work before you take away the Klonopin, it could really hurt if the Valium hasn't taken effect yet.

You could certainly start with this schedule but if you hurt, I'd be ready to slow things down.

Yeah but thatís the dilemma.  How do you cross if your doctor doesnít help?

Finding a doctor that goes with this is not easy and I need to start soon.
