I originally started taking clonazepam .5 mg twice a day probably in early August. I stayed on that for a time, and everything stabilized. Then I wanted to decrease the meds, which I did
, but too fast. I had problems with the panicky feelings again. I saw my psychiatrist, and we discussed it, and I started over again at 1 mg daily (.5 twice a day), and then after I was feeling better, I slowly tapered to .75 mg daily (.25 mg in the am, .5 in the pm), then after several weeks, down to .5 mg daily(.25 mg twice a day). I tried once before to get down to .25 once a day, and had the same issues of anxiety, nausea, etc. So, I increased back to .25 twice a day, and it subsided. I stayed on that dose for a couple of months. Now I was trying to taper again from .25 twice a day, to .25 once a day. And 4 days in, I started feeling anxious, and nauseous. I have not had a full blown panic attack since trying to decrease, but I do not feel well physically, and feel that I am on the edge of one. So, I wind up taking another .25 mg tablet, and feel better within a couple of hours.
