I take Klonopin and it's also helped my GERD a whole, whole lot. That and Prevacid have just about
eliminated it, in fact, even though I smoke. If I stopped smoking I bed I could come off the Prevacid. Every great now and then I'll take an antacid like Rolaids or whatever, but not very often at all.
And Klonopin has kicked my panic disorder's ass. I've only been on it six weeks or so, so I still have concerns about
tolerance. I'm not really worried about
addiction. As long as it keeps me from being screwed up in the head, I'm definitely okay with being addicted to it. I don't care. It's not like I'm taking it for fun. In spite of some issues with sedation, I don't even feel it so it's not like I'm getting high. I don't think Klonopin can even make a person high. Some drug addicts use it to intensify heroin and other opiates, but I don't think Klonopin itself will make you high. Then again, I've never taken more than a .5 mg tablet at a time.
