*******************************************

BZD's are also just as appropriate for GAD, SAD and a host of other disorcders, not just PD overall. I use a maintainence dose of Klonopin (2MG's) and add Ativan PRN (up to 4 -5 MG if needed)for social situations.

The klon stabilises the GAD and the ativan (or xanax) is used for the social situations and anticipatory anxiety. BUT BZD's work as differently within the class as AD's do in their class for treatment of depression. A very misunderstood drug. You should be busting your doctors balls. YOU are the boss. If he doesn't think you're interested in how YOU feel, ask him why he thinks you'd be telling them you feel better on this medicine. If he doesn't listen, WALK, don't run to someone that understands these medications and specialises in the treatment of anxiety disorders and isn't a benzophobe. They're out there if you look for them.
