I did read your post just after I submitted mine-interesting. I definitely have increased urinary frequency but I also have a bunch of other symptoms that wax and wane including testicular pain, pain on ejaculation, burning sensation in posterior urethra/perineum, and decreased urine flow (all well described for prostatitis). Do you have an of these other symptoms?
It's interesting that you did not say you were going down on your dose. If your symptoms are related to the Klonopin, not withdrawal, maybe they are tolerance related. That would explain why you got symptoms after 8 mos. If that's the case, then going up on your dose would make your symptoms better, while going down would make them worse (at least in the short run). It would be the opposite if the Klonopin in and of itself was causing the symptoms.
Anyway, my symptoms have gotten a little better over the last few days- I'll let you know how it goes.
