Re: Xanax vs. Klonopin Greg

In reply to Xanax vs. Klonopin, posted by Greg on June 6, 2001, at 17:39:42

Greg,

I think everybody is different. I've tried both Xanax and Klonopin. The first time I tried Klonopin it worked almost too well, and it definitely gave my libido a boost. I went back to Xanax when I started having what I thought was depression. I had been taking 3 mg. of Xanax, and switched to 2 mg. of Klonopin, which worked fine. A few years later I decided to try Klonopin again and 2 mg. didn't do anything for me, and I had to take it just as often as I did Xanax. I also had breakthrough anxiety. I don't know if it was the generic or what, but I tried it again just recently and had a similar experience. Who would have thought Klonopin would poop out the second and third time around?
