The lower you can go, the smoother the transition will be.  I went to .1mg and then jumped off.  Had sucess doing that. 

I put a 10mg pill in 100ml of water.  Then extracted 1ml to take each day using a liquid syringe that I got from CVS I think.  I would shake it around a bit before extracting it.

I think Ashton says it is .5, but I've seen more ease with folks who took it down lower. I'll probably go down to .10. Nice work so far!

The Ashton tables show 1mg as the stopping point:

I thought the Ashton manual said 1 mg to jump also.

I think Iíll go as low as possible. Iím water tapering so Iíll jump off less that .5.  Should take me around 3-4 months cutting .5 a month.

I tapered clonazepam to 0.01mg and felt confident that this dose was low enough for me.  I dry cut until I got to the end of my taper and then did the water taper for the last 0.5mg.
