> I called Roche(which is now genentech, I guess)to discuss splitting the 1mg pill which is not scored.(to save $ and not have to take the generic,which is ok,but I like roche)I became alarmed after the pharmacist there became alarmed that Ive been on klonopin for 4 yrs. She stated that they advise no more than 9 weeks use,that it was never tested beyond that. She suggested that I work out a taper with my doctor. This is a pharmacist that is working for Roche,so what does she know about benzos that we dont? Do I just need to get some perspective?

That's a very alarmist statement that goes against decades of clinical experience. My pdoc has told me that she has had patients on klonopin for years, with no ill effects, no dosage escalation or loss of effect, etc.
