> anyway im off topic. is it plausible to expect the effects i got from 2 mgs of clono every day for the rest of my life? even if i go up a bit, who cares. is this possible though?


~~~How long have you been a 2 mgs.???, if its been a while, chances are its the dose for you and can stay quite effective.

And, BTW, physical dependence is different from addiction. Addiction, by definition, involves psychosocial disruption, accelerated use, inapproiate use, and drug seeking behavior. If you have those signs, then yes, you are addicted, otherwise....

For me, it's not just a question of word usage. I am insulted and lead to feel even more stigmatized (isn't having a mental illness bad enough?) when that term is used to describe my usage of a med that I take to treat a disorder I have and will probably have life long. Plenty here throw the addiction word around for any use, past a few weeks, of a benzo. The information in the 'net doesn't help, either.

Good follow up with your doc is essential, but yes, there is a case to be made for long term approiate use.
