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?

I was on klonopin for almost 2 years. I was at about 1.5-2 mg a day. I decided to taper off in May. Went down .125 mg every 3 days. I finished my taper July 13th. I slowed down my taper toward the end because of withdrawal symptoms. Even thought it took 2 months I probably should have went even slower. I still get withdrawal symptoms. I can't sleep and anxiety is worse than it was before klonopin. I'm getting better though.

I'll never take a benzo again.
