As usual, we all react differently. With benzos, I finally can think clearly without anxiety getting in the way. No numbing -- just normal thought.

I'm a research scientist (university professor), and did without benzos throughout most of my career, with tremendous harm to my mental and physical health. When I discovered Klonopin, my life turned around (although it's still far from perfect). I wouldn't trade this med for anything, and I have tried the full gamut of SSRIs/SNRIs etc., which were uniformly awful for me.

The new meds are good for some, the old ones better for others. Rather than rejecting the older ones, I think that doctors should try the range of possibilities and see what works best for each patient. And, I think that this eagerness of some to get off benzos should be tempered by the realization that constant anxiety is much more detrimental than benzo use for most people...unless there's a better solution that I'm not aware of.
