> I finally got my pdoc to write me a script for Klonopin..after much begging! I've been on Ativan for over 20 yrs. and just don't feel it works for me anymore. I want something to help w/Social Phobia, along w/my EMSAM. My PDoc insists a benzo is a benzo except for differences in the half life. All opinions are appreciated...is Klonopin generally better for S.P. than the other benzos? And why or why not? Thanks!

I think all benzos will make you more
relazed in social situations; the difference
with Klonopin is that you are not aware of
its effect (when taken constantly at a
constant dose). However, the cause of
social phobia may vary -- e.g. anxiety
may cause social phobia, but also endocrine
abnormalities, with personal idiosyncracies
coming in last imho.

Recently, I have begun to wonder if
cocaine may not actually be used for
social phobia or at least something
enervating rather than sedating. I don't
know if there are any medical studies on
this. It just seems to me that phobia
may not be exactly the same thing as
anxiety - in which case a different
drug may be better for each.

Darn semantics :-)
