Tapering the last amount of Klonopin.
« on: March 22, 2022, 05:04:20 pm »
Hello everyone, when cutting a dry taper do we keep fixed amount or as the amount goes down so does the amount we cut because 5 to 10 percent is a smaller dose. Or do we just cut by how we feel each cut.
example .15mg = .060 grams cur 7 percent every 5 days

.060 - .004 = .056 grams then cut 7 percent of that
.060 - .004 = .052
.052- .004=.048
.048 -.003= .042 and so on till i jump. each cut is the amount of 7 percent for that newly weighted pill. am i correct on this?

I don't think there is a general way to answer this question.  This rate would be considered fast for a lot of people.  I was open to holding along the way but I found I didn't have to.  Any taper plan should suit the individual and be flexible when necessary.

You've made some great progress but it looks like your sleep has suffered.  The best thing you can do for sleeping issues is to accept you're not going to sleep because fretting over it makes it that much harder to find.
