>Hello, Need some advice here myself, I have a GAD with bad panic attacks, been taking 1 to xanax a day, seems ok, have a new rx for lexapro, had for 2 weeks, afraid to take. so all your opinions, lexapro or klonopin? my sis says the latter

Klonopin was originally developed as a drug for seizures and people who take it for that take up to 10 mg/day initially and seem to be able to back off as needed.
> Personally, I'd much rather take Klonopin than any of the SSRI's, no matter how much it takes.
> Having said that, Klonopin does some have depressive properties for some. You cold look into switching into another benzo like Xanax or Ativan that doesn't have depressive properties.
> Having said that as well, if you have a program that's working for you, stay with it until your system tells you that it's time to back off a little.
> I hoe you're getting your script from a psychiatrist that is also doing therapy with you, not a family physician.
