Yes, I do agree that people may be commonly prescribed doses higher than they need. Especially for chronic anxiety. I wonder if that is because, when used as an anti-seizure drug, quite high doses are used. So, with that dose as a benchmark, doctors prescribe too high (for anxiety).
I always try to start any drug, at the lowest possible dose and work up, but I was given what was an "average" dose of Klon. (1mg) initially. It seemed low to me, until I researched a bit, and found that quite typically, GAD responders needed less.
I had no trouble tapering down, at all.
