What’s the tapering schedule for a patient who is on 50mg/day of Clonazepam? The only hint I’m willing to give is to convert the dose of Clonazepam to Diazepam and then guess between 1~75% decrease per week of the dose.

1 Answers

10mg of Diazepam is equipotent to 0.5mg of Clonazepam so therefore 1mg of Clonazepam is 20mg of Diazepam. 50mg of Clonazepam would be 1000mg of Diazepam. Professor Ashton’s Benzo taper manual recommends between 10 to 25% decrease per week according to patients tolerability. Therefore I would start at 5% a week, because 1000mg od Diazepam is bizarrely supratherapeutic and the patient is bound to experience w/d dx and I would want to mitigate that so I would start below what i’d recommend, and that increase at increments of 5% every 4 weeks to taper off the patient.
