Getting off long-term Klonopin use is a bear, for sure. I feel for you. www.benzo.org.uk is a good source for info - there's lots of good stuff about benzo addiction and discontinuation.
It concerns me that all too often, with psych meds, the cure is worse than the disease.
From my own experience with Klonopin, I want to tell you to be prepared for the difficulty in discontinuation - it's not always easy and/or pleasant. It seems that many such things (cigarettes, for example) are tough to stop.
