Hi guys/gals, I'm 29 yr old male. Type 1 Diabetic. Very good shape and eat healthy. Due to an epsode I had in college I have been on Clonazepam for about 9 years. Started with .5mg twice a day and upped to 1mg twice a day. I've been at this dosage for about 8 of the 9 years and never upped it since. I have recently been getting slightly more anxious and I am against upping my dose. Due to various considerations I told my GP that I wanted to taper off (he has been prescribing for last 6 years.) I told him that I did research about the process for benzos and how many people typically need 6 months or longer to ween down. He is generally a nice guy but out of nowehre said something to the effort of "If you take 6 months you might as well just keep taking it." I was concerned and confused because coming off a constrolled substance is not the easiest thing. He set a timeframe of 1-2 months and already decreased my prescription from [60 1mg tabs] to [30 1mg tabs+60 .25mg tabs]. I read www.benzo.org.uk for tapering ideas and they are far different from what my GP is recommending. He recommeneds keeping my morning dose of 1mg constant and tapering the afternoon dose down by .125/.25/.375/.5/etc every 3 days until no afternoon dose. Then, moving onto the morning dose and repeating. I feel this may be too quick. Any thoughts? Thank you sincerely, Jonathan
