I myself went the benzo route about a year ago for some situational anxiety added on top of my generalized life anxiety. I'm facing the very real withdrawal associated with tapering Klonopin right now. I don't think this is insurmountable, but it's painful and slow. Looking back I wish I had explored a few more non-benzo meds and/or made some life changes.

Would you mind telling me what symptoms you are experiencing while withdrawing from Klonopin (other than a return of anxiety)? I am wanting to lower my dose and don't know what to look out for other than increased anxiety.
