i ask this because i have tried a lot of drugs and this has helped more than anything else. i fear long term use of this or anything else but my quality of life is not very good without it.i know there have been a lot of posts about klonopin so a lot of people must feel better with it. doctor's opinions vary from it is dangerous and addictive to it is actually good for the brain. i have decided that i am going to take it and stay at the lowest dosage possible to have some kind of a life. your feedback would be appreciated. i also wonder if valium would be good to alternate with it.
