Intersting. I get depressed from long term use of Valium, short term use of Xanax, but do get an "antidepressant" response from Clonazepam. Clonazepam helps with the stupor like, burned out like feeling I often have. It doesnt make me happy or brightens mood. I only take 0,5 mg at night. If I take more, I only get more tired. Its good for sleep, but useless for me to take when I go out, because it makes me too tired and apathtic.
