Please, please, no benzo bashers on this post. So my doctor like every other doctor I have seen wants too start tapering me off my klonopin I believe after all my refills are gone. Side note i do take paxil too and those too together are magic as they dont completely erase my anxiety but make it manageable soo I am able too do skills and live somewhat normally. And yes I have tried other benzos and basically every non narc on the market. I have dealt w panic attacks since childhood. Its not living as many of you know. I understand the side effects and understand the dependency, withdrawal and potential for addiction. But I am willing too risk all that just too be normak. I know there are ppl who receive it long term, its a risk vs. benefit thing. Any idea on what too tell my doc when she brings it up again ?? I cant go back to that life.

      Research and advocate for yourself. I think exactly what you said above about weighing the risks vs benefits is perfect. Btw, longtime Klonopin Patient here, as well👋

        @EliteLexy how do you take it? And what works for you?

          @mizzcali19 I am also on Propanalol which significantly helps my cardiovascular system and CNS.

          @mizzcali19 sorry! I have not been on in a while. I take .5mg 2 times a day.

        @EliteLexy me too. Quick question. How many mg and how often do you take it? I'm on 0.5 and it doesn't seem to help
