Hello. I was put on tranxene 20+ years ago. By a doctor that recently retired. My new doctor informed me recently of exactly what I have been taking. I did take the generic which is clorazepate. Over the years I lowered the dose myself. Because I wanted to use the least amount that was effective. So for 20 years I have taken one 3.75 mg tab daily.. Half in the Am and half in the pm.. The doctor told me to cut out the morning dose.. I had come home and read up on what this medication is , and I was shocked and frightened. So I cut it by a 1/4th. Taking 1/4 three times a day.. For a total of 2.8125 daily. Thinking If I split it in three doses I could cut out the middle next. Then read more about it..More info leaves me more confused as to how to taper .. I had a very bad first two weeks. tremors, sweating , intestinal problems , some shaking .. Then I started to feel ok. Now I am afraid to lower the dose. Having read all the horrendous side effects. Anyone have any experience coming off this medication? Its a benzo. Something I was totally unaware of. And now have read so much I am terrified. Anyone have any info? I would greatly appreciate it.. I plan ot taper .Never cut so much again. But info on how much of that would help also. Thank you for any info anyone can give me.
