I have been on a low dose. Only 2 mg for about 5 or 6 months. I have a bout 30 pills of 1mg Klonopin. Do you think I can successfully detox off of suboxone by replacing it temporarily with Klonopin? I have gotten off of Klonopin fairly easy in the past so that is not a problem for me.

I jumped off 2mg. It still sucks whether your taking klonopin or not. It will help with some of the anxiety and things. But it wont act as any sort of replacement.

Everybody is different but if you could taper lower it will be easier... I jumped at .25mg and I had klonopin and it didnt really do much for me so I stopped taking it

however clonidine did help with the restless leg and skin crawling

good luck keep us posted

That makes me feel 10 times better that I know someone else jumped from 2. I was already pretty confident I could do this but now I am positive. How long did your withdrawal symptoms last?

Also I should mention I've only been on it for about 6 months.

With (I think) 4 days in things haven't been so bad. But this last night was awful. It has been especially my legs. I don't know if that is normal. Just a lot of terrible pain in my legs.

Ugh fucking going crazy. I'm supposed to play a show tonight with my band. It's still early morning. Hopefully I'll be able to make it but not sure.

the leg thing is called restless leg and colonidine helps with that.......to me the leg kicking was the worst part but if you can get colonadine it will help
