How to Stop Taking Clonazepam
To avoid severe withdrawal symptoms, your healthcare provider may decide to slowly wean you off clonazepam, although this may not be necessary in all situations. Be sure to talk with your healthcare provider before stopping clonazepam. If you are taking clonazepam for epilepsy, your healthcare provider will likely recommend starting a new epilepsy medication while stopping clonazepam to help prevent seizures.
You should let your healthcare provider know if you notice any bothersome symptoms after stopping clonazepam. Do not be afraid to ask your healthcare provider for help, even if you have been abusing clonazepam (see Klonopin Addiction) or taking it without a prescription. Withdrawal from this drug can be very dangerous.
