Wow, I like that policy: "There are no awards here on Earth for needless suffering."

I find it true for me as well but something I needed to be reminded about. For me it's a matter of remembering that my baseline anxiety level is quite high and that going off Klonopin is not as clear cut as I think it is. I'm sure it's different for everyone, as most meds affect people differently. I have been on Klonopin for many years at a very low dose (.5 mg 1-2x day) then went off it 3 months ago concurrently with going onto neurontin (which proved to be a bad move for me). That was when I discovered there is a basic anxiety I have that Klonopin withdrawl is NOT responsible for at all. It's a difficult thing for me to accept, but I'm hoping that I get it right this time. Thanks for the invaluable info, as I may need it someday.
