Iím on day 7 of the reduction from 0.25mg klonopin. I only have a pill cutter so Iím just cutting a smidge off. I want to say itís probably a cut off of 0.0625. Iím going to hold this for 3-7 more days then drop to .125mg 🙏. Sleep is good. Mild anxiety but concentration has been a little off but could be from my lexapro increase

Your symptoms sound manageable so far, most members say they notice the reduction of Klonopin around day 3 but symptoms seem to settle around day 10.  I've heard razor blades can be good for shaving the pills into the desired dose.

When do you recommend dropping off from .125mg? Do I hold that for 7-14 days then stop? Or reduce it a hair more?

Typically Klonopin users will taper down a bit lower but the important question is how are you feeling?  It seems like you've been quite functional so is your gut telling you that .125 would be a good dose or would tapering a bit lower give you more confidence?

Tapering a little bit lower would definitely give me more confidence

Miserable times, I'm sorry you had two of them!  Are you going to go lower before you jump?

Have you mentioned this feeling to your doctor, I'm not sure I've seen anyone describe feeling this way when starting an A/D.
