Just looking for other peoples experiences with these two medications (either together or separately). I took 20mg Celexa every night for about 5 years to help my anxiety attacks. Starting 5 months ago (per doctors recommendation) I had to up my dose to 40mg every evening as well as .25mg Klonopin in the AM and the PM. In the last two-three weeks i've experiences more stress, and consequently more anxiety and my doctor suggested I add an extra .25mg Klonopin in the middle of my day. I trust my doctor, but I feel like everywhere I read that Klonopin is only supposed to be used for 2-4weeks or it can cause long term problems. I've been on on .50mg daily for 20 WEEKS and .75mg for the last 3 WEEKS. I'm afraid maybe my doctor made a mistake prescribing me a medication for so long, when I thought it was just going to be a temporary thing...anyway, anyone who has experience with either of these medications i'd love to hear what you have to say...
 
Thanks

I've been on clonazepan for over a year, starting at 2mgs a day and now take 4mgs a day. If it works for you ,don't be afraid to take it. All the psych meds have a level of addiction just try stopping one and you'll soon see.
