> Many people have already posted of their experience taking other benzos like Xanax for decades with out raising the dose (and sometimes lowering it).
Then there must have been another factor
influencing my need to raise the Xanax-- possibly
the Synthroid was too high.

> I became addicted to clonazepam in the truest sense - compulsively raising the dose until at its height I was taking 20mg a day. It's always possible to withdraw from benzos though it may be very hard.

This too is strange. I took clonazepam for
7-10 yrs with no need to raise it; then my dr.
raised by .50 totalling to 1.0mg and I was fine.
I could have stayed there indefinitely, except
for my ill-considered attempt to withdraw from
that given my success with Xanax. It was that
horrible attempt that led to the necessity for raising it even more just to stabilize.

Curiouser and curiouser -- but I don't expect you
to unravel this -- it just remains a mystery for me. I have other mysteries too; i've read a lot of books and still, they remain. :-)

I hope you feel better coming off.
