Benzos have to be titrated very carefully. Yes too much will can cause depression, fatigue and loss of libido. The key is to use just enough to relieve the anxiety. For instance I take between 1 - 2 milligrams of klonopin a day. I take just enough to feel normal. Try cutting back and see what is the lowest dose that you require and you should see your numbness and lack of libido get better. Sounds like you might be taking to high a dose.
