Who successfully came off a benzo after being on it for say atleast 3 years. I've been on Clonazepam for about that length of time and am thinking of trying to come off of it. How did you do it? What was your experience like?

My aunt took benzos regularly for 25 years until her tolerance was too high for it to actually take effect. Her doctor regulated it so that she did not experience withdrawal. She is still on mood stabilizer and an SSRI.

Talk to your doctor and I predict he'll gradually lessen your daily dose. It takes time to come off of benzos without withdrawal.
