> recently switched from 2mg of klonopin back to 2mg of ativan.....after about 2 days i get very nervous again....could it be klonopin withdrawel kicking in.....i also take tegretol which supposedly reduces klonopin somwhat so i don't get it...or am i reading to much in to it?


Hi crazyjoe. Klonopin is 4 times stronger than Ativan ...

0.25mg Klonopin = 1.0mg Ativan ... so 2mg klonopin switched to 2mg Ativan is not an even swap. You would need 8mg Ativan to equal 2mg klonopin.

And ativan's much shorter half life creates an even bigger problem.

Here is a good chart...
