Mike Porter Says:

Is it possible to become addicted to .5 mg Klonolpin daily dose? When I say addiction, I mean actual physical withdrawal symptoms. I would think most could come off a dose this small without any serious withdrawal.

At this low of a dose and not abusing it by taking more and more of it, someone would actually become dependent on it, rather than addicted.

And dependence can cause some withdrawal symptoms, when the medication is discontinued, but they are usually pretty mild.

Learn more Klonopin details here.

The most dangerous aspect, if they'd been taking it for a long period of time, is the risk of seizures if they stop taking it abruptly.

Are there any other questions or comments?

Even after taking Klonopin 0.5mg for a short time you can still have mental & some physical withdrawals. Always taper the drug down. Major withdrawal is seizures which normally occur in the first 72 hrs

sorry mike!!! no matter how low the dose, clonopin is a benzo, and physical withdrawal is the same a being hooked, it is just a nicer way to say it. eventually your body needs it no matter what, I am ex- medical and have had a seizure or two, myself so you need to be weaned off carefully with your Md giving you 1 more and saying you need 1 more so you wont have a seizure, or go to E.R and explain to them, they wont let you have a seizure, if you have only been on them 2 weeks you should be fine with out help, good luck
