I take ativan which is a shorter acting drug than Clonazepam and the DR always said drinks in moderation are just fine. 1 or 2 on the weekends is good. The main reason why alcohol is not advised while using lorazpem or any other benzo is that the drug compounds the effects of the alcohol. SO if you are worried about
having a drink a week after you are off the meds I would say that is no problem. BUT I am not a DR either- so your own judgement and circumstances may change my recommendation.
Congrats on getting off of Klonopin or Clonazpem. That is quite a win for sure! Benzos are hard to get off of and I regret getting them a few years back.
Did you do anything special with your taper? What kinds of withdrawal symptoms did you notice? I am trying to switch to Vallium or Clonazpem because the half lives are longer than ativan so it will make it easier to taper if on a different drug. AWESOME you are off of that mess!!!!!!!!
Are you taking anything else at the moment?
