Is that REALLY what they call it?

What, you're serious? That is the pharmacist's slang?

I thought that was reserved for stuff like Valium. Or was that the mothers little helper of yesteryear? Is klonopin really called a "M.L.H."? I'm just incredulous because I find it does not actually seem like a little helper at all except that it prevents panic attacks.

If anything, although I am functioning fine now, I find that my temper is a bit of a problem now that I am on klonopin monotherapy. I have been wondering (and I know you could only wager the vaguest of guesses) could this be attributable to klonopin itself, or to discontinuation of Paxil, or could my slight temper problem be my "real" personality resurfacing?

By "temper" I simply mean getting a little more upset than I used to. i.e., there was a juvenile flamefest on my own message board yesterday and I entertained thoughts of taking down the 100-user, 1000 posts per day wildly popular board... I took a shower and thought about it and cooled off so to speak.

Somehow I think that while I took Paxil or Zoloft my real and normal emotions were suppressed and now I am feeling real feelings again that are sometimes problematic but normal life-feelings. Yet I don't become predisposed to the crippling and insidious anxiety that creeps in unnoticed until it erupts into a debilitating panic attack.

I'm not being touchy toward you, Cam, becasue I know you were winking, but does the general populace really think klonopin is a feel good pill? Like I said, to me it is only a feel-like-staying-out-of-the-E.R. pill.
