Matt, I don't know that Klonipin causes depression, I'd say the opposite. I took xanax and then klonipin for ten years, but both the p-docs I have seen wanted me off them. I self-medicated with a xanax for 3 yrs panic disorder/deression/anxiety until I went on Zoloft. While zoloft did wonders on panic, I still needed an almost daily benzo. Addicted? I never increased it the klonipin much at all--and never took more than 1.0/day. I hate to say it, but it is good stuff.

But--neither doc ever told me no benzos anymore. (I just quit myself a few months ago when I went on adderall for add.) Anyway, alice, I think you really need to tell your doc what you said here--I do not know if you abused Klonipin when you were on it, but if you didn't, why can't you take it before social events and until a non-addicting alternative is found? I just don't think anyone needs to suffer these days when there is something that can help.

I shouldn't say this--but before I saw a p-doc, I got xanax from my internist or gynacologist (sp). No problem-and these folks are with an academic med center, hardly pill-pushing quacks.
