There really isn't any disagreement here as I see it. Very gradual withdrawl is the answer whether it be done purely as Louise's reference article discusses or by way of using a longer half-life benzo to accomplish the same task.
Perhaps what Louise is trying to tell us is that the specific benzo klonopin (for whatever reason) didn't make her feel well in withdrawl like the other benzo - xanax - so she decided to withdraw purely with that xanax. Makes sense.
I know that I don't feel as well on other benzos that I've tried and slow withdrawl has been a little more severe feeling than with the same slow withdrawl process using lorazepam for instance (my benzo of choice).
