    Xanax to Klonopin

    Hey everyone, Thank you in advance for your help!
    I have been taking Xanax 1.5mg at bed time and .5 throughout the day as needed for the past 8-10 months. My Doc and I agree that Klonopin might be a better choice for me cause of It's longer lasting half life. I am pretty nervous and dont know what to expect. My questions are...
    1) Has anyone else switched abruptly from xanax to klonopin before
    without tapering or weaning down the xanax?
    2) Is is possible to take them both at the same time?

    Any inupt or advice is much appreciated. Thanks

    Well i guess this isnt such a popular topic =)

    Just to follow up, I made the switch yesterday. Stopped xanax the night
    before and started klonopin the next morning. Absolutely no side effects for me and I felt better after my second dose already! Hope this helps someone else.
