I am very confused. I have been on Xanax since 2001 and have my dose has been slowly increased at my doctor's request to 3 mg a day since that time Now, out of the blue, she wants to swtich me to Klonopin. She says that even though I will be put on Klonopin, I will still have to take the Xanax also in the change over process. I have never had any problems with Xanax, but she thinks Klonopin will give me better results with my anxiety and panic, even though I am doing well now. I asked about Xanax XR, so I wouldn't have to do so much changing, but she never answered me. Can anyone out there, give me there own experiences if they have taken either one of these? In my opinion, if it isn't broke, don't fix it. But on the other hand, I'm not a doctor. Thanks for any input!!
