Hopefully, I'll be seeing total victory right around the bend in about 2-3 weeks. I was on a high of 4 mg. back in 2002, had to quit the taper for a while during a depression episode, and resumed it many months ago. I've deliberately gone slow as molasses with this taper, since I hated the mild-to-moderate withdrawal anxiety I developed at one or two points during the taper. I got down to .125 mg. and experienced a bit more, then decided to try switching over to VALIUM (diazepam), which has been utilized as means of quitting most any benzo because of its longer half-life. At present, I'm down to 1 mg. Valium, which equals a mere .05 mg. of Klonopin. So far, so good. I plan to drop it to .5 mg of Valum this Friday, and quit totally about a week later. This is all coming at a time of job uncertainty and overseas trip planning, but I'm determined to see the benzo taper to the end! I will definitely post a Victory note on this board when I feel sure I'm fully in the clear (maybe about 2 weeks after totally stopping). Many people want to know just why I want to get off the Klonopin/benzo bus and the reasons are manifold. The main reason was that I was originally prescribed Klonopin for insomnia (a side effect of depression) but it's no longer a problem,
