I took lots and lots of different benzos (Ativan,Xanax,Valium,Frisium,Tranxene,Prazepam,Cloxazolam,Oxazepam,Rohyponol,Lormetazepam,and many many more)and Clonazepam was the only benzo that always gave from the first pill,no matter what the dose is, a blue feeling,helplessness,depressive thoughts....most benzos give depressive symptoms during withdrawal from medium - long use.....but nothing like clonazepam which has this severe symptoms while on the drug and after.........

I noticed from some readings that clonazepam,unlike all other benzos, has some unknown serotonergic effects,and I suspect that it has to do with what lots of people experience as depression from clonazepam.

Just my experience and some thoughts about the cause...

Any I deas and input about Klon&depression?
