In reply to Why is Klonopin the Benzo du Jour, posted by MB on December 17, 2002, at 12:10:29
> Does anybody know why almost everyone on this board who takes a benzo takes Klonopin? It definitely *is* the benzo du Jour. Once in a while I see Xanax mentioned on this board, but Valium, Ativan, Librium are almost unmentioned. Anyway, maybe they are mentioned, and I just don't see it. However, I've got to say that it seems 90% of all benzo posts are about Klonopin. Why is it the popular one?
P-docs like it because it is the slowest to leave the blood, affecting a lesser risk for tolerance and abuse. Xanax is more likely to be prescribed by a GP, who is like conscious of this matter.
