Re: PD suggests long term Klonopin or Ativan Griobhtha

In reply to PD suggests long term Klonopin or Ativan, posted by Griobhtha on May 25, 2004, at 10:36:22

I've taken Klonopin for about three years (1 mg/day), and aside from a little sleepiness during the first week or two, I haven't noticed any side effects or had to increase the dose. For me, it simply reduces anxiety and has been a tremendous help.

I haven't tried Ativan, but do take Xanax occasionally for especially stressful situations. It works quickly and has a subtle mood-lifting effect for me. However, I seem to develop tolerance to its effects very quickly if I take it often at all, so I really limit my use of it. It is helpful to have on hand, but Klonopin lasts much longer and is known for working well for years at the same dose. I recommend Klonopin highly.
