Hi, Forever Young, Im 50 now, and I have a very stable, calm life right now. It's really the right time for me to get off of daily klonopin. Ive mainly had situational anxiety, and I do best with 'as needed' med use. If I take care of my sleep, and make sure to rely on exercise, I thrive. So, my pdoc and I decided that I will stay on valium to stabilize a few months, then try an taper it. If all goes well, I will be using small crumbs of 15mg remeron pills(which works for me for sleep very well), as needed for sleep, and klonopin or valium, as needed to control spikes of anxiety, or to get it under control for a few days, then stop. If I have to take a daily med, I will go with Zoloft or Prozac, but hopefully not. My neck pain/shoulder tension just comes and goes, so I think Im stuck with it. I may have an mri at some point. Thanks for asking!
