Getting off won't be hard at all with less than a month. Just monitor yourself closely...and with all of your behaviors, consider the Klonopin. And make sure you are being checked on regularly. I've been on Klonopin (Clonozepam) for over a year, though not till recently a daily user, and my 'weaning' plan is surprisingly short/simple.
I went to see a new primary care doctor nearer to me yesterday than me, and like I expected, she was unhappy that I had a benzo and gave me a guideline to wean myself off of it. I don't know what your doses are, but I'll share with you what the guidelines she gave me for withdrawing safely.
I have 1mg pills to take 2 times daily. I've been on them about a year, at first only a few times a week, really as needed. The last month though, I have been taking the 2mg as a day (lots of social requirements).
So...my plan is 2 weeks:
.5 mg (half a pill) twice a day for a week. Then, .25 mg (a quarter of a pill) 2 times a day, all 8 hours apart for a week. And that's it! Pharmacies sell pill cutters apparently.
When I got off an SSRI once on my own (much younger).... I was already taking a lot less than prescribed because I disliked certain side effects. Basically, I took enough, even a nibble or so off a pill, to not feel "trippy". I just realized you said Klonopin, not the generic clonozepam--so I don't know if your pills are full of granules, because that is of course way different.
I was really hoping that my new Dr. would just go with my old script of clonozepam. They make me awesome, minus the need for extra caffeine and some slight memory stuff. And I really don't wanna go back to an SSRI....but I will be trying Celexa (was on Effexor a few years ago--hated how it made me not care about things I'd been passionate about).
But I agree--weaning now is better than later, and with what I am planning to do this year and still taking Klonopin would have me hooked for sure. I know someone who took benzos for 20+ years, and even withdrawing with guidelines, ended up throwing lamps, abandoning her family for a few days, and having her husband call the police.
Still will be taking propranolol for panic attacks.
