I don't know why my clonazepam didn't dissolve in whole milk.  I crushed it first but maybe it was the manufacturer - it was a generic brand.  We have a support group for Ambien and other Z drugs and here is the link.  Hopefully you can get some useful information there:

Thanks a ton!

[...]:  Do you perchance mean to say that your clonazepam tablet did not disperse (as in disintegrate, fall apart) as readily in milk as it did in water alone?  (Dispersion is not the same as dissolving.)

It basically stayed in the same form as when I crushed it - the milk seemed to have no effect on the larger chunks of the crush I did.  I got the same effect in water - no real difference in the crushed pill after adding water.  And the particles sunk to the bottom of the mix just at they did in water.

I am doing milk titration too..... does anyone know if this is ok?  So I'm low on the .5Mg I am titrating (at like .13mg).  Instead of throwing away the amount I'm not going to use, can I pull out what I am going to use (In my case 20 ML out of 75ML).  Then I'd have enough from the same batch for tomorrow to pull out another 20ML.  Does that make sense?

I'm glad you've come up with a plan you are comfortable with.  I dry tapered until I couldn't cut any longer because the doses were too small and then I switched to a liquid taper very similar to yours.  I tried dissolving clonazepam in milk and water and it didn't dissolve in either (in my kitchen :-) so I used water to taper and I shook it vigorously before dosing and dosed immediately.  I didn't use alcohol for the same reason you aren't using it.

I know what you mean about feeling like Walter White - it felt a bit sinister to be crushing and mixing drugs in my kitchen but it was for a good cause  :-)

Good that you are giving yourself permission to hold when/if necessary.  A good taper plan is one of the keys to success but it should have some leeway built into it.  It also would be helpful if you kept a journel to track your progress and any symptoms you have along the way.  Withdrawl symptoms and how you are functioning in your daily life are good guide as to how you are doing and can give you clues as to when and if you need to hold.

I look forward to hearing about your progress [...].   :thumbsup:

Thanks [...]. I hope I have better success with dissolving than you did *fingers crossed*

Looks like I need to tackle the Ambien first :facepalm:

Any advice on tapering that would be appreciated. Not sure how to go about that. What % cuts, how often, etc. I didnít even know it has its own withdrawl symptoms (I take 15-20mg per night) ugh.

Very nice catch!  24hrs. Makes sense. Thank you [...].

As for your question above, I have no idea. I donít see why not but donít take my advice. My syringes havenít even arrived yet.

Iím envious of your dose, though. Excellent job.

My dose is only slightly lower than yours at 1.63.  I'm just doing the .5mg separately.  I am following in your footsteps and going to do more than 75 days.  I'm having a hard time with benzo belly.  Wish you all the best and I'm glad there is someone else doing the milk titration at this point.

In a later video (see link below), Crazy Canuck shared his discovery that he could speed up the tablet dispersion process by adding a little water to the tablet, waiting a bit for the tablet to disperse (as in fall apart) then adding the milk.

Are you referring to this post?

If so, are you asking if it would be ok to use the measure/ingest approach versus measure/discard?
