I am new to this forum, and I have had General anxiety Disorder for years - what started off as unexpected anxiety attacks. I also suffer from chronic PVCs and GERD. My post here is just to inform all that since my doctor put me on .5 klonopin in place of xanax years ago, I have not had a full blown anxiety attack. This Med, for me at least seems to prevent them from happening. thanks. nice forum.
