I have to say that I myself got tunnel vision :-( I always said that benzos were more a like than different. And this is usually true. As I said yesterday, I went to the dr and he gave Valium--a low dose for sleep, and for muscle tension. I have Rx'd it so far many times....that and Ativan (lorazepam), just because those are the mainstays in the hospital setting. Anyway, I have been on 1mg Klonpin (clonazepam) up to three times a day and really like it, though it's losings it effect for me, and I wont go any higher, as I feel it already is too high. I have also been on Ativan for panic when I was a kid and during college. It literally saved me and allowed me to be social and outgoing enough in class, though it did effct my memory. And also, a very brief stint with Xanax Rx'd by the college medical facility doctor. I never saw much difference, except klonopin was the best for me as far as relaxation and helping me be less anxious. Yesterday, I took 5mgs of Valium (equivalant to 0.5mgs of Klonpin aprox) and then took another half, 2.5 mgs at bed. I had the most prfound muscle relaxation ever....except when I was in the hospital and was drugged up from a car accident at 21. It was not euphoria but man.....I thought klonopin had muscoskeletal relaxant effects because that's just what is taught and it does. I am NOT advocating anyone to go get this drug because it too can be addicting...unless you need it. I am just curious what everyone has found regarding this in comparison to other meds or benzos. I think it might have a place, in low dose PRN for Fibro pain. I am sure many of the folks on here have talken it in the 70s and early 90's when "Mothers Little Helper" was handed out like candy by unknowing doctors. Doctors today dont Rx it really in home setting practices because of the stigma, although that's silly because it is no more addicting than say klonopin and I think Xanax is even more addicting and that is the no #1 prescribed benzo for 10 years straight!
