Benzos are cheap since most of them are generic. Clonazepam (Klonopin) is a good one because it doesn't dope you out. They've gotten me through some very bad spots. There was a time when I took a small dose of clonazepam 3x a day and it was what got me through and able to get on top of terrible anxiety, both through life situations and med changes. I now only take a benzo (currently valium) just when I really need it and it will nip a bad spell in the bud. Just having a bottle in my cupboard is many times enough to offset a panic attack, much like a security blanket. I do not suscribe to the theory that benzos worsen depression. Anxiety and stress worsen depression. Please mention this to your pdoc. It could take alot of heat off what you're going through, and if you decide to dump Depakote and whatever else you're on, it will smooth out the transition.
