I have been on benzos for over 8 years due to severe Panic Disorder, Generalized Anxiety, and Social Phobia. I switched from 4mgs of Xanax a day to 2mg of Klonopin twice a day and feel amazing. Much longer acting med compared to Xanax. Also prefer Mylan brand to Teva but the name brand original "K Cuts" are the best by Roche. No more panic attacks, low anxiety and socially comfortable ag ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Started on Klonopin about 5 yrs. ago, in conjunction with Zoloft for depression combined with panic disorder. It absolutely worked miracles for controlling the panic disorder ( for some reason I prefer to call them anxiety attacks, sounds less severe). Initially I had been put on Celexa & Valium. At some point Zoloft replaced the Celexa, & Klonopin replaced the Valium. Good moves on both f ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
People. Yes this med will help anxiety, panic attacks. The problem is it has led me to severe depression, hair loss, skin problems and just totally screwed up my CNS. I am lethargic, unable to work now etc. This is a warning. Benzo meds are very hard to discontinue. Ive been tapering for months and have a long way to go. I can only hope and pray that the depression and lethargy will lift some day. ... Show Full Comment
