My pdoc says that he has numerous patients in similar situations, and likes Klonopin precisely because tolerance to the anxiolytic effects is rare. Klonopin ranks very low on the "difficulty of discontinuation" scale, even in comparison to many more widely prescribed psychiatric meds such as antidepressants etc.

I am concerned with some of the benzo opinions that were given from the chemist. I have seen a ton of Literature on Klonopin as I worked for the company that marketed it, and also for companies that were competitors....Thanks TR
