Friday night I began my taper from .5 mg of klonopin.
I cut my .5 mg pill in half with my trusty pill cutter, producing two .25 mg pills.
I then put one of my new dis-solvable .25 pills in a cup of water.
I let the pill dissolve and then washed down the .25 I had made with the trusty pill cutter.
So that equals .5 mg total. So no reduction in amount, no taper.
Still, sadly, the next morning I was tense and agitated. So while the amunt did not change, the
means of ingesting the filthy med did and that in turn effected my mood.
Last night I continued the taper but decided a whole cup of water was too much for my bladder. So
instead I dissolved the .25 in a 1/4 cup of water.
I slept almost through the night with that dose…unusual for me, and feel calmer.
So here is the plan or drug schedule as we druggies say.
1/4 cup of water contains 12 teaspoons.
I plan to get things down to .25 over two months. I will reduce the amount in the cup by one teaspoon every five days or so.
Today I will begin by pulling one teaspoon out of the cup. Then we will see what we will see.
