I have been on different doses of valium for 6 months. I have been on 30mg maybe 4 months. I do take it daily. They have suggested I do a direct switch to 3mg of klonopin. Sound right to you?
Pharmacist: Dr. C. Rollins, Pharm. D. replied 2 months ago
For the high dosage you are on it does sound correct.

They suggest no cross taper just switch over. Is that safe?
Pharmacist: Dr. C. Rollins, Pharm. D. replied 2 months ago

Yes it is safe.

They said take 1mg 3 times a day. Will I notice any difference? Can I have seizures? Is Klonopin just as hard to get off of? Im already lethargic on valium will klonopin cause this too?
Pharmacist: Dr. C. Rollins, Pharm. D. replied 2 months ago

I do not know that you will see much difference. You will not have seizures for sure. There is a possibility you could still be lethargic but it''s possible you may not. Both can be hard to get off put Klonopin will be easier.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
