Does anyone know if Klonipin is bad for someone who has AD
If so what would be a good anti anxiety/panic attack medication.
 
Thanks for any input -

Klonopin is good short term, but you build up a tolerance to it fast. And then even if you stay at the same doseage, it will stop working and you can actually withdraw on a stable doseage even if you keep taking it. similar to opiates in tolerance issues. ultimately klonopin made my anxiety worse because i could never use enough of it, and the withdrawal is worse anxiety, panic, and flu/nervous system symptoms. Use with caution but do use it if its absolutely necessary.
