Sounds like Steve has more personal experience with some of these meds than I do, but I just want to note that Buspar is an entirely different ballgame compared to benzos like Klonopin and Xanax-- it specifically effects serotonin receptors, yet in a different way than reuptake inhibitors like Zoloft or Prozac. (In other words, it doesn't have benzo-like side effects and usually needs to be taken for a while before it has much effect...)
> What made these problems so aggravating, was that they seemed to get worse over time. My solution was to switch to a different antidepressant (Prozac for many years, noe Celexea). As for your Klonopin dosage, I don't think it's very high (but these things vary so much from person to person). I am still on Klonopin to this day. I tried other benzos in the past: ativan, xanax & buspar. My personal opinion is that klonopin is the best. And as far as "addiction" -- well, I've been on bezos for 7 years now, and have managed to finish professional school, so I can't be on that of a track! Additionally, I am a firm believer that to really conquer anxiety/panic seretonin is the answer (increasing it of course). Hope this helps!
