>20mg is what they give to epileptics -- that
is so high;

The most my doctor prescribed was 8mg (in addition to some other benzo-like sleeping tablets). I was buying clonazepam from online pharmacies by the time I was taking 20mg - and for a short while only. It did indeed cause respiratory depression - I seemed to be choking at one point though I was taking it with tramadol for euphoria too which would have contributed of course.

>Coming off such a high amount though, must
take a long time to do and to recover.

I was forced by circumstances (and my GP) to quit cold turkey - no taper for me, yet the Heroin addicts at the clinic they sent me to were given disability benefit and free methadone prescriptions for as long as they needed(!).

Again that's what Heather was saying about drug detox clinics not being suitable for benzo addicts. The counsellors there had no idea how to go about helping me with my underlying anxiety disorder, they were used to easing people back into a normal life not treating psychiatric problems.
