Re: klonopin vs clonazepam Bob

Bob,
I have taken both, I think, but I've been taking Clonazapam for a long, long time and have not had any trouble with it. I initially took it for severe GAD and then tapered off within about two years. I was off of it for years (while taking zoloft) but started taking it again a couple of years ago after having an exercise induced panic attack. Since then, sometimes it's the ONLY thing that gets me through...some days I don't even feel like I need it. part of the problem is that the zoloft has stopped being as effective for me and so I have switched to Lexapro and am in transition.
I don't understand why anyone is taking xanax in the long term when all of the doctors I have dealt with acted as if it was a street-drug, but seem to think an endless perscription of clonazapam is just fine...
I haven't noticed it bothering my sleep, either. If I don't sleep well, I don't. If I do sleep well, I do. All while taking .5-1 mg of it a night. Is that a low dose?
Any advice is appreciated...you seem really knowledgable!
Mary
