> It's odd how people's responses to medications are so different. When I'm not anxious I just don't take any Klonopin and have never had any bad reaction from it. I've been off sometimes as much as a week with no problems. Of course, there may be something going on in my brain that explains both the lack of anxiety (NOT a normal state for me) and the lack of Klonopin withdrawal symptoms.

It's the same for me. I use it every day, but my dosage varies a lot depending on my needs. I may need more than 1 mg one day, 0.5 mg or 0.25 mg another. There just never seems to be any negative effects from changing the dosage on an as-needed basis. Based on this, I suspect that if I reach of state of really low anxiety, I won't have any problem just not taking it. Obviously, everyone's body is different and your mileage may vary. I feel lucky to have found a drug that works so easily for me.
