Hello Madam,
Since when you are tapering down klonopin?
Kindly mention your current dosing and the rate of tapering?
Are you also taking any other medicine?
What is your diagnosis?
Thanks

There are significant withdrawal symptoms when going off of Klonopin or other medications in that group. Tiredness is typically a side effect when taking the medication rather than when coming off of it. Haldol does have a strong sedative effect, however. Is it a new medication for you?

it is not a new medication
One of the side effects of Klonopin for some people is that it can be activating. It's possible this was the case for you but it was balanced by the sedation of the Haldol. Now that you're not taking the Klonopin, the tiredness that comes from the Haldol may be in full effect. I would discuss the problem with your doctor. There are many other antipsychotics that are less sedating.
