I think I know what you're talking about here. And of course the first and only source should be a professional.

Dawn's case was a little unusual, though, don't you think? To be off Clonazepam for a full 18 months and then have a general practitioner suddenly prescribe her 4 mg/day off the bat? I believe the question was asked on the weekend and options are often limited when it comes to talking to a professional. And, in this case, did she really want to ask that same doctor, anyway?

If someone has JUST started taking a med under those circumstances and can barely stay awake, I don't feel bad for suggesting she cut back just until Monday. It was a strange situation and one that'll probably never come up again because usually doctors are smart people who know what they're doing. It's not like we're sending people to surgery here. The FDA and Roche guidelines are available on the internet for anyone to look at, and they are what they are: suggestions based on years of clinical study. You don't have to be a medical doctor to know something WEIRD was going on with that dose.

But, yeah, we shouldn't be in the habit of commenting on peoples' dosages. No way. It's not something I'd usually ever get involved in, that's for sure. It's between a doctor and patient. Nobody should EVER EVER EVER take drug advice based on what people here write, even if it's good and sound advice. They should consider taking what people write here and discussing it with their doctors. That's clearly the way to go. But again...on a weekend, with a really high starting dose of a very potent drug....I don't know. Red flags were just going up all over the place. Sorry for crossing the line.
