Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello, my name is Soniya ****, and I have been taking Klonopin 1 mg three times a day, so 3 mg total. Is it okay if I go from taking it three times a day to two times a day? I really don't want to take it anymore because it is making me hungry, sleepy, etc. so I want to safely taper off of it. I don't know if it is safe to break the pills in half, so can I just go from 3 times a day to two times a day, and then I have an appointment with my doctor on Wednesday, and I can ask him how to taper off of it from 2 times a day. Please tell me what you think.
Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Uzair.I am reviewing your post and will get back to your reply momentarily.
You can taper to two tablets of 1mg twice a day for about 2 weeks before cutting down further. The best thing would be to taper according to your prescribing physicians regime.
