to me, the 'keyword' of your dr. w/klonopin clients is 'indefinently'---with daily use, you will usually see no problems, save perhaps 'blunting' and in the case of my second ex, depression. it's when the drug is suddenly stopped big trouble shows up. when klonopin 'arrived', as i've said, it became the 'darling-drug' for bipolars and panic clients. as you have apparenty not experienced sudden withdrawal from klonopin, nor apparently your dr., i may understand your 'beef' with dr. ashton's 'taper-model'. but the world agrees--it's, so far, the only safe way out for long-term users. xanax produces euphoria, which quickly nails many, as heroin, or crack. and that's why your dr. says he'd cut you off at signs of 'abuse'. smart move, but he's missed the fact that klonopin sudden withdrawal seems to produce the same horrific effect as xanax sudden cessation, just days later. i'm not beating a dead horse. but my arms are tired. until you encounter full benzo withdrawal, do you have the experience to predict? to have any idea as to its severity? unlikely, as that deal is unique to direct experience. nothing i may say will prepare anyone for such. but someday, you may wish to put klonopin and xanax aside---the ashton paradigm will be your best ally.
