> I have been on benzos for about 27 years now, my new Pdoc thinks that Klonopin (3 mgs. a day) may be the reason for my TR depression and wants me to slowly taper off of it. I have gotten down to 2 mgs. a day now for about a week and i do believe i am feeling a bit better. Anyone agree that klonopin could be a major contributor to my depression?

Hi Dan,

I've been on Klonopin for about 4 years now. I started at 1mg day and over the years, have had to increae it. I don't notice that it makes me more depressed. If I don't take it I am more depressed but that could just be because the anxiety becomes worse if I lower it and that makes the depression worse.

Keep us posted.
