Did anyone have to taper off of clonazepam, or did you just stop taking it? What dose were you taking and for how long?

      Hi there, tapering causes less disruptions to the chemical balances so reduces side effects of coming off meds. Brain zaps, nausea, exhaustion, memory loss etc can be a real problem when stopping psych meds abruptly. Taking NAD+ and magnesium everyday you're tapering and thereafter can help, there's a psychiatrist in the states (Dr. Kendra Campbell) that focusses her practice solely on safely getting people off psych meds, she recommends the above compounds to support the brain when tapering based on research and evidence. Hope this helps :)

Some individuals shared their experiences of tapering off Clonazepam. One person mentioned they had been taking 0.5mg three or four times a day for over a year and were considering tapering off. Another individual shared that they had been on it for years and had successfully tapered off, but advised to do so very slowly due to the difficulty of coming off benzodiazepines. Yet another person mentioned being on 0.5mg and was reduced to two and a half doses a day as part of a tapering process. However, one person reported having taken Klonopin (another name for Clonazepam) for six months, then switching to other medications, and eventually stopping without experiencing withdrawal symptoms.
