> Klonopin makes me stupid. It's something that I've learned to live with and I've been adjusting the dosage for (gasp) about 15 years. On higher doses I skip letters and words while writing, even missing letters in my signature. The grasping for words is out of control at high doses. Then i'll bring it down until I feel that I can function intellectuall, and stay there until the anxiety sends me back up. It's a nasty cycle, but I can live with it b/c I don't seem able to live without the Klonopin. Another interesting thing I've noticed is that Klonopin even makes me physically stupid. I was having problems snowboarding last year (I'm a veteran rider, many years, but not very good!) and my pdoc suggested cutting back the Klonopin. It worked. Drugs are bizarre.

You got it,they are double edged swords,we need their tape effect to function,however it goes aganist what our bodies are built to do,which is protect us from foreign substances,so on one hand we want it to work and be effective,on the other hand we need our bodies to keep many toxic substance out or wed be a total mess,seems unless we actualy start creating "medication" that we have some scientific belief we are actualing treating something wrong specificaly,we are doomed to live out these unwanted side effects and med "poop outs"

Sorry u had such a bad responce with it,glad to hear u still at least snow board regardless and not letting it overcome your life.
