> It is SAD that there are not medications out there that help those of us who suffer from extreme depression and anxiety without serious side effects and withdrawal.

I agree with everything you've said regarding the importance of tapering off benzo type drugs as well as anti-depressants. But I fully disagree with your above statement. There most certainly ARE meds for people who suffer from extreme depression and anxiety,and side effects can be mild or tolerable. As you yourself realize, there are great differences in efficacy and side effects for different individuals.

In your case, I would pin the blame for your suffering solely on your doctor who was such a jackass as to abruptly discontinue the Klonopin without a slow taper. That's like writing a presription for a grand mal seizure for sure.
