I experienced tremendous relief with clonazepam, unfortunately my dose eventually ended up being upwards of 6 mg a day, which I was told was a very large dose. I was completely tolerant and I think I was even experiencing tolerance withdrawal. I cross-tapered to diazepam and things are going great. In my opinion, go SLOW SLOW SLOW SLOW SLOW. I had a seizure when my doctor tried to direct taper me from clonazepam at 0.25 mg a week. IMO my doctor was not knowledgeable about how to properly taper benzo's, but he was very receptive to printed information from the "Ashton Manual", which was written by a now retired professor and MD who ran a benzo withdrawal clinic. It is easily found on the web. EDIT: My experience.
