.....AD's come out all time and tons are in the 'pipeline" Brand names =MONEY. Personally I have been on all the bz's written most often (klonopin, ativan, valium, and the dreaded xanax.) In fact, i began with xanax 13 years ago with one complaint--the short half-life. I was eating 2mg tabs three to four times a day...three were for "maintenance" preventing withdrawal symptoms< BUT once xanax er came out, i often take just the 3mg pills in the am and maybe, on a bad day 2 2mgs...3 if im losing it.

klonopin, esp for bi poler's, can bring on depression. valium, has a great half life but doesn't do a ton for a full blow them anytimeover the newn panic attack and ativan weak unless you are in a hospital and given it iv.

I take sssri's too, and lamictal as a mood deflector, but given the time that benzo's have been around and the research, I'll choose them anytime over the the newest med with little research andyears of use in practice.
